California African American Museum (CAAM) presents its annual spring celebration, “HATTITUDE! With Tea on the Side.” Actor Jeffrey Anderson Gunter cohosts with actress CCH Pounder on this special program where participants enjoyed a special showing of Parisian Couture Chapeau Designer, ALAKAZIA, “Le Chapeau by ALAKAZIA,” while sipping delicious African teas, courtesy of African Red Tea Rooibos.

NAACP ACT-SO pianist Arif Muhammad performed, along with vocalists from LA Opera’s Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program. A fashion show featuring dancers modeling ALAKAZIA’s line of artistic hats dazzled the audience with the most stylish, fashionable, creative, and elegant hats for men and women. More than 200 men, women and children joined in the celebration to showcase their own stylish hats and participate in the fun hat competition. “HATTITUDE is always one of the most enjoyable events that we feature at CAAM,” said CAAM Executive Director Charmaine Jefferson.

“This year’s presentation of hats by ALAKAZIA was amazing, but we equally enjoyed and appreciated our community guests of all ages, that modeled their hat wear and spring attire.”
