Natural Hair - A Do or a Don't in the Workplace?

Afros, braids, locks ... au naturel comes in many forms. But do those forms have a "place" in the workplace?

The battle to determine if natural hairstyles promote culture, fashion or both has jumped from boardroom to courtroom.

TONIGHT at 7 pm on The Eavesdrop, the ladies of the Kitchen Table Collective will take a look at this barrier-to-entry Black community members face, in the workplace, as always with real conversation for real people.
