Saturday Photos: Church Crowns for Easter Sunday

April 11, 2009

At the LA Times, photos and a story of the unique hats that are traditional for African American women at church services.

Fans of the HBO show, “The Wire”, might remember that church crowns played an important part of the plot in a season 3 episode relating to Omar’s ongoing conflict with the Barksdale organization. A short story about the symbolism of the hats and a clip from the Wire are here at Andrew Sullivan’s blog from February of 2007.

And, if that isn’t enough on the Church Crown phenomenon, here’s a slide show from Time Magazine.
