In different cultures it has different names— doek, duku, tukwi— but in Nigeria, the head tie that is a common part of many women’s attire is called gele. The Monroe Street Neighborhood Center will host a workshop on how to properly wrap a “gele”. Attendees are asked to bring their own wrap and a small mirror. Although the event will be held free of charge, donations are encouraged to support the Center.
