Why the barbershop?
Black Daddies Club (BDC) returns to their roots by collaborating with Onyx Barbers, who BDC collaborated with 15 years ago in 2007 to do our first barbershop sessions. In 2022, we decided to collaborate again for these financial series, as we have seen in research and our own experience over 15 years that barbershop works for community engagement specifically for Black men and Black fathers, because these barbershop spaces normalize the idea of Black men speaking and communicating with each other and it’s a place where we can practice being comfortable being vulnerable and honest in our dialogues with each other.
