Natural Hair - A Do or a Don't in the Workplace?

Afros, braids, locks ... au naturel comes in many forms. But do those forms have a "place" in the workplace?

The question of "acceptable" hair in the workplace has been a controversial challenge for employees and employers alike.

The battle to determine if natural hairstyles promote culture, fashion or both has jumped from boardroom to courtroom.

TONIGHT at 7 pm on The Eavesdrop, the ladies of the Kitchen Table Collective will take a look at this barrier-to-entry Black community members face, in the workplace, as always with real conversation for real people.

THE MELTING POT - Pledge Drive Special

  -BEATS ANTIQUE- 

Tuesday 10/18/2011 from 8-10pm

 

On this weeks edition of THE MELTING POT We will be focusing on the music of BEATS ANTIQUE featuring Interviews & Music blended and remixed live in the studio for 2 hours. Focusing on the new release ELEKTRAFONE, as well as rarities, remixes, classics and covers... Refreaked!! Like youve never heard them before.

Since the group’s inception from the eclectic underground of San Francisco’s performance art scene, Beats Antique has been notorious for making it nearly impossible to sit still. They meld their mediums as attentively as they fuse the cultures that inspire their sound. All self produced and composed, the trio creates a unique collage: an animalistic, raw musical event that blurs the lines between the provocative, the spiritual, and the artistic, while still maintaining an allegiance to the muses of class and beauty.

Well be offering tickets to Vagabond Operas Transylvanian Voodoo Ball Oct 29th, Ott w/ Pututure Primitive Nov21, & Blackaliscious w/ Lyrics Born & Freestyle Fellowship Oct 21st , Blockhead w/ Dj Cam Nov1. As Thank You Gifts for your Pledge...
