"Every woman that prayeth or prophesieth
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.
