Langdon Divers Community Gallery will feature an exhibit celebrating natural Black hair during the month of August. 

Crowns, showcasing photos of 14 Black men, women, and children of Fond du Lac County, will be on display from Aug. 3 to Sept. 6. A reception will be held Thursday, Aug. 11 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the gallery.

The exhibit is inspired by The Crown Act, an initiative that is raising awareness of hair discrimination among people of color, especially Black women. Each person photographed was also asked to state why they love their natural Black hair, and the quote given is also on each poster below their photo. 

This exhibit was made possible by Tracy Abler of United for Diversity, Amber Kilwawee of Fond du Lac Area United Way, the volunteer models, and their families. 

The Langdon Divers Community Gallery is open seven days a week, whenever the Fond du Lac Public Library is open at 32 Sheboygan St. The gallery may be found off the atrium at the south entrance to the Main Library.
