2001 Baldhead Sarah Bellam Tee
Description & Details
An experience in Cuba led Badu to let go of her signature headpiece. After an unexpected encounter with a priest who didn’t quite look like one, she realized that external experiences weren’t nearly as dynamic as inner ones. Due to this realization, Badu stopped wearing the wrap and shaved her head. “At that moment, I became what I was, and not what I had on,” she said.
The "Sarah Bellam" phase of her career was captured by artist Jackie Musial and is printed on the shirt's front. "BADU" is written in Old English on the back.
