The Handsome Barber Shop, which recently expanded and built a new facility as part of the Teutonia Gardens development, is one of the oldest African American businesses in the State of Wisconsin. The shop is owned by two brothers, Haralson and Thaddeus Moore. Haralson Moore said “the barber shop was pleased to co-sponsor this Community Fair with the Milwaukee Urban League because there is nothing more important than helping get our children ready for school and parents need assistance, especially with these tough economic times”. Ralph Hollmon, President & CEO, Milwaukee Urban League said he was in total agreement with Mr. Moore and that he was pleased to see one of our businesses giving back to the community.
