Empowerment in Education

Our goal is to encourage people to understand the uniqueness of afro hair and ultimately help the world to appreciate difference as a positive characteristic and not a negative one.

Alongside the World Record Lesson there will be author Tola Okogwu - Daddy do My Hair? Music performances, Spoken Word and Q&As.

There will be a speech by Miss USA 2016 Deshauna Barber who made headlines for wearing her natural hair to the Miss USA 2017 pagent, televised worldwide. She has gone from relaxing her hair at eight years old to a global afro advocate!

Vernon Francois's mission is to empower a generation with the knowledge and confidence to unlock the potential of their hair’s true texture: kinky, coily, curly or wavy.
