BE11 – Black Women and the Legacies of Africa

with Beverly Tipton Hammond

Art can deepen our understanding of our shared narrative and anchor our knowledge of ourselves. Join distinguished historian James Stewart and artists from the group AHHA! (Artistry. Honesty. Healing. Action!) as they interpret American history through images of the Black experience. Black history is American history.

Beverly Tipton Hammond is an ordained minister, author, actress and visual artist. In this art talk she shares the powerful historical connection between African Women’s Head Dress and the hats worn today in the church by African American Women. The faith, the food, the music, the arts are all entwined in the story. The struggle and oppression during the years of enslavement continues today, but as an undercurrent of disdain. How has fashion empowered women to mobilize for racial justice and how do we find healing for ravaged souls?
