Kamal Nuru, owner and president of Levels Barbershop and Barber World TV; Quincy Mills, author of Cutting Along the Color Line: Black Barbers and Barber Shops in America; Polo Greene, barber at Harlem Masters; and others (to be announced) come together for this one-night-only event, presented in partnership with BAM’s presentation of Barber Shop Chronicles.
