The Black barber shop is legendarily known as the “Black man’s Country Club.” Douglas Walter Bristol Jr., author of “Knights of the Razor,” documented the evolution of African American barbering. Bristol states, “Barbering allowed black men to transform themselves from slaves into businessmen and leaders.”

Master Barber & Beauty Shop hosted and published, HAIRitage, a fine photo exhibition and catalogue dedicated to showcasing and capturing the essence of the Barber Shop. A display of black and white photos, barbering tools and hair care artifacts are featured in the exhibit and catalogue.

HAIRitage explores the history of the barbershop by bringing to life the social, cultural and spiritual aspect of the Black Barber Shop. The establishment was founded by J.D. Wilborn in 1952 and purchased by Earlie D. and Mary Brown in 1974.

The HAIRitage exhibition features photography by Gerry GOS” Simpson.
