Wanda Laphoto: The rise of creative Freedom in South Africa.
Crowned as The Culture
Just like Black Baptist churches and Hip-Hop/Rap culture, black barbershops serve as a safe haven and a political structure that fuels liberators to resist America’s injustices and prejudices. The coolness birthed in these marginalized spaces ignites style, presentation, and innovation. From extraordinary church hats to precise high top fades with a crisp part, Black culture is crowned as THE CULTURE.
In black communities, the barbershop has also been a cultivated space for Black people to celebrate and embrace their sense of blackness all while escaping society’s false depictions of blackness and harsh challenges in their everyday lives.
