In black culture, a safe haven has always been the spaces where we are ourselves without being policed. Since the early 1900s barber shops and beauty salons have been those spaces for black people. So many black people have been raised in these shops, they have been protected, they have grown into men and women. These establishments were the first of black entrepreneurship amongst men and women. They deserve to be protected and seen as scared spaces.
