There's Attitude, And Then There's 'Hat-itude'

In the musical CROWNS, a young woman is sent to live with her grandmother after a tragic loss and gets to know the elder's circle of church-going friends. The proud women teach life lessons that revolve around themes colorful, vibrant hats, or "crowns", worn as part of their church wardrobe. The actresses from CROWNS explain their characters and the symbolism of the hats among African-American women.
