Crown of Times

Don’t miss the premiere of the new full-length production from ReRooted- only at the Museum of Science, Boston!

Crown of Times is a performance that critically examines the wounded history of Black Hair Culture over five decades and the influences of American politics, music, and fashion on shaping that culture while exploring Black women’s deep, complex, and emotional relationship with their hair. It’s a necessary conversation with The United States legally negotiating the ideals of good and bad hair with the Crown Act.

This performance is a self-reflective love note that addresses the social constructs that tell all women, especially Black women, they are not good enough. This production redefines Black hair by repositioning it as a Crown. The performance is written and directed by Yvette Modestin (activist, poet, and painter) and Michele Avery (Network writer/producer).
