The Wrap Up of An Art Nerd's Day Out: A Crown of Glory Affair at The Tubman Museum

Yolanda Latimore is the Founder of Poetic Peace Arts, a troupe of spoken word artists, musicians, singers, comedians, DJs, producers, thespians, & more. But on Saturday she was gracing crowns with extraordinary locs and twists. 

Trysha Stephens stood in for Gloria G. Marable - also known as "The Wig Lady” owner of Shh! It’s a Wig in Macon, Georgia. The range of wigs present ranged from exotic Patti LaBelle-esque styles to conservative styles meant to accommodate those with illness related alopecia (to those clients Ms. Marable offers a discount).

I, personally, had my on the sweetest black sequined turban (reminiscent of June & Chrisette) that had just enough spandex to accommodate my afro and ward off those evil bad hair days.

Dr. Chi Ezekwuech is a pharmacist who followed her creative calling to become a fine artist receiving her BFA from Wesleyan College in 1996. Her artwork and fashion sense reflect her Nigerian heritage. She was on hand to demonstrate the art of sculpting head wraps from some of the most beautiful fabrics I have ever seen (her model Ms. Stephens).

Nothing new under the sun!
