World Afro Day: More than 8000 school children from across the world joined together in a celebration of hair, identity and equality

TV Presenters, special guests and international Child Champions like Celai West, inspired children to be confident changemakers for 2019.

Children from across the world are being educated about afro hair through The Big Hair Assembly.

Seven years old UK child hair influencer, Farouk James was joined by 11 years old Child Influencer Celai West (USA) and 10 years old Angel Noor (Netherlands) for a child takeover of the natural hair movement. 

The event took place at schools around the globe on Friday, ahead of World Afro Day on Sunday.

The awareness day aims to celebrate afro hair, and change negative attitudes towards afro hair.

The assembly was to launch World Afro Day in schools and builds on the record breaking World Afro Day, celebrations, which are endorsed by the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.  The event, was streamed live around the world as well as with global media coverage.
