Winner of four Helen Hayes Awards, CROWNS by Regina Taylor is a coming-of-age story about Yolanda, a self-destructive, African-American teen whose mother sends her away from Brooklyn to live with Grandmother Shaw down south. After the violent death of her brother, Yolanda is ushered through pain, baptized by love, compassion and fortitude of the sisterhood of “Hat Queens.” Each hat carries memory and history of life, death, religion, racism, identity, unity, pride, trials and triumphs. These stories are told through ancient oral and spiritual traditions, which originated in Africa and the field songs, blues, jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop and the Gospel of the American Black Church.
