  TEXAS, USA — For the last few years– her crown has become part of her life’s work. “What a confidence booster that you can walk into these places unapologetic,” said Rep. Rhetta Bowers, D - Garland. Year after year, Texas representative Bowers has stood before her peers laying out Crown Act legislation and its importance. “CROWN stands for Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural hair,” she explained. The bill outlaws discrimination in Texas based on hairstyle and hair texture historically associated with race.
