Sunday Crowns Program

I am working on a program (Sunday Crowns) about church hats for next month which will be held at a local historic house. Part of the presentation will be to talk about the hat wearing women in my family and other families. I also plan to display some of my maternal grandmother's hats. As part of my research, I would like to interview hat wearing women or their descendants. Although my research focus is hat wearing by African American women, I would also like to know about hat wearing habits of women of other races and cultures.

If you are a hat wearing woman or the descendant of one, and are interested in sharing a photo or story to be used in my presentation, please email me at professordru@yahoo.com. The program will be held Saturday, February 18, 2012, 3 PM – 5 PM.

I've been looking at a lot of the hat related info you've posted on facebook. I always enjoy looking at photos of previous generation in their hats and wonder what made them go out of style/custom.

I came of age during the 70s when I think hat wearing begin to decline. Looking over pictures from the 60s, I noticed the formality of dress. Today we are so casual.
