Our Sisters’ Many Hats

March 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

- Free

When we say a person “wears many hats,” we mean that person has many roles in society. This phrase originated in a time when everyone wore hats, and many of those hats were specific to a given trade, official position, or function.

It takes an extraordinary woman to wear all of these hats—professional, artist, citizen, entrepreneur, mother. But is she rare? No. You probably know ten women like her, just like your mother, grandmother, and her grandmother did before her.

March 12, at 6 p.m., in Hickok Hall on Coe College campus, the African American Museum of Iowa will offer a presentation about African American women of Iowa who have been doing amazing work in their many hats for over 164 years.
