Re: Barbershop Clientele Discussion


This is an interesting post. What year was it - I assume it was referring to Ohio. I suppose we also have to assume that Albert Williams was a black owner of the barber shop who was offering equal opportunity services - but, could he have been white and extending services to a black clientele? I'm also wondering if a black barber had enough black patrons in Sandusky at that time to earn a real living? I'm asking because according to the censuses, my gggreat uncles would have had a hard time finding enough black patrons in Greenfield, Indiana, and they would had to also cut the hair and beards of white patrons in order to exist. That fact, would not excuse the exclusion of black patrons, of course.
