As the only black barber in a county of sharecroppers during the 1920s, Uncle Jed traveled for miles to tend to his customers. Saving his money to build his very own barbershop was a dream that had to be postponed because of his generous heart and the Depression.

Then one glorious day, on his 79th birthday, Uncle Jed finally opened the doors of his new shop. Full color.
