Barbershops have always been the Black Man’s country club where brothers could come and discuss politics, sports, education, wars, money and women. Many of us developed some of our views of what was going on in the world while listening to the older men and the barbers that stimulated the dialogue. Many of our barbers because they work on Saturday have not been able to attend many of the conferences, forums and meetings that take place on the weekends.
Therefore, we will hold this forum on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month. We know that once the barbers attend they will pass the information on to the community.
If you are interested in speaking at the Barbershop Forum, call 562-5225 or 374- 2364. Also, encourage your barber to participate. Forums are open to the public.
