#WorldAfroDay: Celebrating All the Famous Kinks, Coils and Curls That Hit the Timeline

Michelle De Leon decided she wanted to create World Afro Day after her daughter made her realize she wanted every child of African descent to love their natural hair. On Sept. 15, 2016, Alabama passed a law allowing for companies to discriminate against people with dreadlocks. In retaliation, De Leon held the first World Afro Day on that day the following year. Since then, it has become a global phenomenon celebrating black hair. We love any excuse to highlight the beauty of these natural hair queens!
