My wife and I reared two children who are now adults. I look back in retrospect and see the areas where I both succeeded and failed as a father.
Arguably, there are fewer occupations and places that have rendered service to African-Americans down through the years and has had a greater impact on black life as barber shops and beauty salons.

Occasionally in my weekly column, I veer from the routine of presenting and giving my honest opinion on issues and matters that I consider relevant to the general well-being of the people of this locale and beyond.
Perhaps the most appropriate way to begin this column today is with this incredibly famous and relevant saying from William Shakespeare: “The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.”
