Verizon and BUILD Present: 'I'm Proud of My Hair'
Verizon and BUILD Present: 'I'm Proud of My Hair'

As part of Verizon’s 20th anniversary, we’re spotlighting the people and stories that move the world forward.

One story that keeps coming up is hair in the Black community.

So we partnered with the team at BUILD Series and sat down at the Soultry Scissors hair salon in West Orange, New Jersey with some extraordinary folks for a real conversation about authenticity and hair.

First up, Executive Coach and Soultry Scissors owner Kim Givens, Mahisha Dellinger - Founder & CEO of Curls and Shaquille Romblay with HuffPost.

Then, we heard from marketing strategist for the fashion and beauty industry Trenesa Stanford-Danuser (pronounced Dan-ooze-er) along with two Verizon leaders - Genia Wilbourn, of Network Operations and David Hubbard from Legal and Public Policy.

What an incredible day.
