Professor D. Wendy Greene

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.
