Black Barbers and the Artistry of the Barbershop
Free and open to the public
(This notification is from the group called Intuit in Chicago. I highly recommend membership here!)
In conjunction with the exhibition The Treasure of Ulysses Davis, Quincy Mills, Assistant Professor of History at Vassar College, will give a presentation on the social and political culture of African American barbershops in the mid Twentieth-Century. Black barbershops have historically been places where commerce, culture and community intersect to inform African Americans' individual and collective freedom.
