Professor D. Wendy Greene is one of the nation’s legal experts on natural hair discrimination and movements around the world. Recently celebrated by Teen Vogue, Professor Greene’s cutting-edge legal scholarship and advocacy have influenced groundbreaking civil rights protections against natural hair discrimination in New York City and Chicago.

She is the author of a forthcoming book, #FreeTheHair: Locking Black Hair to Civil Rights Movements, and the originator of an internationally circulated hashtag: #FreeTheHair. Professor Greene is also currently involved in the development and passage of pending legislation, The CROWN Act, in California, which if passed would afford state-wide protection against natural hair discrimination in workplaces and schools.
