For Tiana: A Care Package FULL of Locs of LOVE

Earlier this week,  7-year-old Tiana Parker was sent home from the Deborah Brown Community School because of her dreadlocks were deemed a faddish hairstyle and unacceptable according to the school’s policy. During an interview with the local news station, Tiana is seen crying because she didn’t understand why her hair was considered so “bad”. Tiana’s father, Terrance Parker, removed his straight-A student from the school.

“She went to the school last year and didn’t have any problems,” said Parker.

Parker said her hair looked the same.

“It hurt my feelings to the core,” said Parker.

“I think that they should let me have my dreads,” said Tiana.

Well Tiana isn’t the only one who thinks the school should let her have her dreads. Since her story broke,  the outpouring of support for Tiana has been amazing.
