I love hats and wanted to highlight these four. As a African-American Christian woman I love the church hat tradition my elder women carry on. Because I believe that all I do is an act of worship and that God’s temple lies inside of me all my hats are “church hats”, because church is wherever I go to glory God-work, dancing with friends or Sunday morning worship. I plan on building a hat collection that will rival Civil and Women’s Right’s Activist Dr. Dorothy Height!
My silly church hat, I brought this at a cute boutique in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia and it makes me happy.
