"Every woman that prayeth
with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head." Corinthians 11:5
When the Apostle Paul decreed that a woman cover her head when
at worship, he could not have imagined the flamboyance with which
African American women would comply. For generations, black women
have interpreted this edict with boundless passion and flair.
Experience the cherished
tradition of dressing up for the glory of God, a convergence of
faith and fashion that keeps the Sabbath both holy and glamorous.
Enjoy the social documentary photography of Carl Clark from his
Sunday Morning Womenseries, complemented by a dazzling collection of bold,
intricately crafted church hats by distinguished designers from
Atlanta, across the U.S., and Nigeria.
