Film Screening: Black Barbershops and Salons: Neighborhood Oasis
Join us for a film screening of Neighborhood Oasis: Black Barber Shops and Salons, followed by a panel discussion.

This feature-length documentary film will explore the microcosm of black barbershops and hair salons in the demographically changing Boston neighborhoods of Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, and the suburban town of Stoughton, Massachusetts. The film juxtaposes the shops’ immensely important role in their communities with the dynamic economic changes that are redefining the nature of those communities. Through a cinema verité approach, the film will delve into interpersonal relationships as well as broader social issues affecting the shops and their patrons.
