The Wrap Brunch @ Jamaica Jamaica Cuisine

This is an official DreamweekSA event! Join us as we explore, demystify and gain a respectful understanding of the African-American woman esthetic: The Headwrap.

This event will be hosted by Naomi Sumthin2Say, who was featured for her unique headwraps in the Institute of Texan Cultures; and is also a local poet and small business owner.

Have you ever wondered “How do they wrap those things?” or “What is the personal and/or cultural significance behind these wraps?”, etc.?

Bring your questions and come out to take part in a discussion about the personal experiences of African-American women and the reasons why the wear their headwraps.

The headwrap is a celebrated accessory in the community of African American women. Within the past decade more African-American women have embraced their roots by donning these headwraps in beautiful and eccentric fashions.

This event will feature a panel discussion delving into the African-American woman’s experiences navigating through this society while celebrating her diverse culture, a headwrapping demonstration and a marketplace.

Though admission is free, we do ask that you RSVP to secure your seat!

Brunch will be available for purchase.
