We are finally getting around to honoring the Civil Rights movement in Oklahoma City. We are building a $28 million building for it.

 It's a great opportunity your libraries are giving to your citizens, to help enlighten about this part of history.

In Montgomery County, it is now illegal to discriminate against people based on their natural hairstyle.

Effective Feb. 6, The CROWN Act — which stands for Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair — prohibits discrimination in employment, housing, and other public services based on natural hairstyles historically associated with race. Afros, twists, curls, braids, and locks are all protected under this new law.

A person who is discriminated against because of a natural hairstyle can seek a civil penalty of up to $5,000 through the county's Office of Human Rights.
