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.

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
