While on Twitter I noticed a trending hashtag #StopRacismAtPretoriaGirlsHigh. I clicked on it and saw images of protests, and tweets of support for girls protesting the school’s hair policy. On Saturday the 27th of August, Pretoria High School for Girls held its annual Spring Fair, this year the event was met with protests by some black students. The students who wear their Afro textured hair natural were protesting the school’s policies pertaining to hair, which they believe discriminates against them. Many claim to have faced pressure to straighten their hair in order to conform to the school’s code of conduct. Some black students have even accused the school of discouraging them from speaking their native languages.
