“I didn’t want red. … Well, you know why.”

The pandemic has shuttered Vanilla Powell Beane‘s millinery shop, but could not stop her from creating a hat especially for Congresswoman Cori Bush of Missouri. Now This Politics delivers the take:


  1. Absolutely endearing!!!
    Rep.Bush is alright with me..she is beautiful…intelligent….fearless….and keeps it 100!!
    God bless Ms. Beane…she was an angel waiting to bless Rep. Bush, and she really did so with a baaaad hat that looks great on the congresswoman!!

  2. Vanilla Powell Beane is my aunt. She is my great grandmother, Lucille Powell Wilkins, youngest sister. Our family is super proud of her!
