Susie’s “happy hats” are in dialogue with the time-honored church hat tradition, which stems from the following Biblical passage:
“But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head … A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. It is for this reason that a woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head, because of the angels.” -1 Corinthians 11:5-15
Those church hats sound a little less than happy, don’t they?
Susie isn’t the only person in Leimert Park with something to say about hats. View the slideshow to meet other neighborhood hat enthusiasts.
