The Crown Act’s fifth anniversary was celebrated outside of Barclays Center in Downtown Brooklyn on Wednesday.
Around 30 young Brooklyn residents came together alongside the WNBA’s New York Liberty and I Am H.A.I.R. Beauty to celebrate the act. It was passed in 2019 to protect people from race-based hair discrimination.
