When They Tell You Your Natural Hair Isn't Professional

Meet Brittany Noble, of the Noble Journalist. She was working her way up in TV News, landed an anchor position, then, she had a baby, decided to embrace her natural hair, and everything changed.

They wouldn't accommodate her with a place to pump, they took her face off of the promotional billboards while she was pregnant, she wasn't invited to represent the station at events and had her natural hair deemed unprofessional and compared to wearing a baseball cap.

Find out what she decided to do about it and how the station responded.
