Posted on Updated on

pharell hat

Yes, Pharrell has made his hat style popular . His hat, made by designer  Vivienne Westwood, of the UK is taking storm for its uniqueness. (Whether you like it or not.)

Here’s what we really APPLAUD him for :

1. HIS COURAGE – for wearing a hat that’s totally different from the norm.

2. HIS DILIGENCE.  It takes a lot to make a 34 hour HAPPY video.

3. HIS STYLE. He’s a  pretty spiffy dresser and looks good MOST of the time.

4. HE Cherishes women. His wife is a beautiful model and fashion designer he loves dearly.

5. He simply COOL, because he celebrates being different. Check out his video on CNN that talks about being different. Read more on the hat man, here.

6. He loves  and preaches about HUMANITY & service.  Check out his Facebook page, he’s always talking about it. (Gotta love ’em!)

CROWNS – 10th Anniversary on Stage!

Video Posted on Updated on

With hip-hop african , jazz and african music being coming Center Stage as well as the spoken word, African American women take the stage with this rendition of CROWNS. Actress and DIRECTOR Regina Taylor (Actress on Losing Isaiah and Courage Under Fire and Lean on Me)   continues to make her mark! Check it out!

 

 

Regina Taylor  grew up with the love of books and the power of words and has directed a few plays. “Crowns” tells the story of 17-year-old Yolanda, who’s sent down South to stay with her grandmother after her brother is shot to death in the street.
“She is introduced to her grandmother’s circle of ‘hat queens,’” Taylor said. “Think of the ‘Joy Luck Club.’”

Yolanda gets to know the women through their “crowns.”
“Each hat has a story about … each woman’s life,” Taylor said. “As she learns these stories, she finds out that she’s not alone in the journeys that she’s had, the struggles she’s had, others have shared them.

“They give her a sense (that) she can be this unique individual among other unique individuals whose purpose is to support her, to root her as she moves forward in her own way. They send her back to Chicago whole, knowing where she comes from, knowing that she has a foundation. She can see where she’s from in a different way.”“Crowns” tells the story of 17-year-old Yolanda, who’s sent down South to stay with her grandmother after her brother is shot to death in the street.
