Crowns June 15-July 1, 2018

Description

By Regina Taylor, adapted from the book by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry

Told in a mix of gospel, jazz, blues, hip-hop and spoken word, Crowns is a moving and celebratory exploration of history and identity as seen through the eyes of Yolanda, a young African-American woman who comes down South after her brother is killed, and is introduced to her grandmother’s circle of hat queens. Each hat holds the story of one of life’s joys or struggles, as Yolanda comes to realize that these hats aren’t just fashion statements, but testimonies of sisterhood - they are hard-earned Crowns.
