“World Afro Day is a global day of celebration and liberation for Afro hair and identity, endorsed by the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human rights. We work with organisations, companies, authorities and people from all backgrounds to tackle hair discrimination. We produce events, tools and training to empower people with Afro hair and to equip everyone for change”
There is deep historical, cultural and spiritual significance that connects African people, across thousands of miles and thousands of years. Afro hair is a human rights issue, affecting hundreds of millions of people internationally. We want to be free from discrimination and we want to be free to express our African identity, through our hair.
