Last Sunday on CBS's Sunday Morning show did a segment on the
publishing of a new book - " Crowns: A Portrait of Black Women in
Church." It is a book with portarits of lovely African American women
from all walks of life in the most glorious hats you have ever seen.
It is a tradition in their culture and some are one of a kind
designs.There is also a written portrait of each individual woman.
You should check it out. I think it would be a great Gift for any one
to add to their costume library.
I saw that segment........amazing assortment!!! Does anyone know where
I can get "blanks" of different hats? Mostly straw for 1790 to 1820 type?
They sell them in catalogs but I want to buy bulk for our reenacting Village.
Thanks in advance,
