Geaux Chapeaux featured in the "Solidarity in Style" Online Hat Exhibit

Geaux Chapeaux is featured in the Solidarity in Style exhibit.

Rosa Parks was my immediate choice for the suffragist event because of her strong will, determination and courage for civil rights and equality. This hat is adorned with a small garden of pansies that symbolize remembrance, thought, and love and admiration for one person to another, which seemed appropriate. Creating this vintage styled hat was a bridge for me to connect my segregation experiences as a young girl, raised in south east Louisiana in the 1960s… who refused to sit at the back of the bus, too!
