So happy to have the full transcript here of my exclusive interview with US employment law specialist Professor Wendy Greene. We discussed, in excellent detail, the Chastity Jones case where a black woman was asked to cut off her sister locs in order to keep her job offer. When this case was taken to the US Supreme Court, Ms Jones was unsuccessful. A petition is currently in place but Professor Greene was an advisor on the case and perfectly sets the scene with all the relevant background. Keep clued up on this very hot topic of grooming codes and global rulings on black women and their hair.
