Discover The Rich Heritage Of The African Head Wrap

Historical interpreter Cheyney McKnight of Not Your Momma’s History, will give a lecture on headwraps found among both free and enslaved African Women in America from the 18th to 19th century.

Attendees will learn how headwraps changed from region to region, and the cultural and historical significance of styles, as well as view and handle the different fabrics that were available to these women.

Cheyney McKnight graduated from Simmons College with a Bachelors degree in Political Science in 2011, and has since dedicated herself to the research and education of American Slavery. She has interpreted 18th, early 19th and mid 19th century slavery as a Living Historian in 26 states, and worked with over 45 historic sites.  She is trained to the standards of the National Association of Interpretation (NAI) and is an experienced historical interpreter. Cheyney has also crafted and written over 18 tours for sites in Virginia and has written 13 specialized museum programs throughout the East Coast. She is also an experienced down hearth cook and public speaker.
