Yolonda is a tough girl from Brooklyn who is proud of her status as a true New Yorker. A family tragedy sends her to live in South Carolina with her grandmother, Mother Shaw. Surrounded by a circle of powerful women, Yolonda learns the “hat queen rules”, awakening in her a deep sense of who she is and where she comes from. Crowns weaves together compelling stories and glorious gospel music to create a tapestry of voices that transcend time and place. Inspiring and stirring, the Chicago Tribune says, “There is something about Crowns that warms the soul.”
