By Antonio Johnson

"Like most Black men, I count on barber shops for much more than a neat head of hair. The jokes, the uncensored banter, the gossip, the arguments, the affirmation, and the brotherhood are just as important as the cut. Johnson's photographs immerse me in this warmly familiar world. Everything comes back—the sound of the voices and clippers, the smell of the lotions, the gentle press of a barber's hand on my head. It's almost like going home.

This is a book to treasure." —John Edwin Mason, University of Virginia associate professor of African history and history of photography
