Join us on for a film-screening and community dialogue featuring Windows & Mirrors — a YouTube Creators for Change project by Hallease Narvaez.
Head-wraps, turbans, wigs, hats. Almost every place in the world has some sort of symbolism or historical attachment to headwear and you can learn a lot about a culture through it. In this video, Hallease explores the concept of headwear through a religious lens and speaks with a few individuals to talk about why they wear what they wear in hopes that these stories will provide windows into other people’s culture to build understanding.
This DreamWeek event will be on MLK Day.
