NAACP Legal Defense Fund asks Florida to take action against schools that ban dreadlocks, braids


October 12, 2018

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund (LDF) asked the Florida Department of Education to take action against six schools in the state that ban dreadlocks and braids, saying the policy is racially discriminatory.

The civil rights organization submitted a letter to the Florida Department of Education (DOE) earlier this month calling out private schools over policies that ban "dreads," "dread-lock style haircuts," "twists," "locs" and "braids."
