Wearing ‘Crowns’: Sharing a journey of African-American culture

Must Read

It focuses on the history of “church hats” and the significance behind wearing them, and we met one of the stars who showed us what wearing a crown really means.

Natasha McKeller is a director at the Boys and Girls Club by day, and the signing, crown-wearing Mother Shaw by night.

“I feel like, as women, whether we have a hat on or not, we’re constantly going and constantly doing,” she said.

McKeller is part of the female-driven cast of “Crowns” at the Straz Center, sharing a journey of African-American culture and women through hats.

A friend urged her to audition for the musical, and the crux of the show does not go unnoticed by her.

“I think of how women are the glue of the earth,” McKeller said. “They’re the glue of society — they keep everyone together, they keep everyone afloat. Without women, where would we be?”

McKeller has been acting for more than 30 years and said women haven’t always had the same opportunities as men in show business.
