Cutting Along the Color Line by Quincy T. Mills '93
Class of 1993 graduate Quincy Mills has had a busy life since he received his diploma from Leo High School. He followed Leo by earning his B.S. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, his M.B.A. from DePaul, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. He currently occupies himself teaching African American history at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY where he has found the time to write a well received book on the history of black barber shops in America. Quincy Mills' book, Cutting Along the Color Line chronicles the cultural history of black barber shops as businesses and civic institutions. Through several generations of barbers, Mills examines the transition from slavery to freedom in the nineteenth century, the early twentieth-century expansion of black consumerism, and the challenges of professionalization, licensing laws, and competition from white barbers. He finds that the profession played a significant though complicated role in twentieth-century racial politics: while the services of shaving and grooming were instrumental in the creation of socially acceptable black masculinity, barbering permitted the financial independence to maintain public spaces that fostered civil rights politics. This sweeping, engaging history of an iconic cultural establishment shows that black entrepreneurship was intimately linked to the struggle for equality. "Quincy T. Mills's important book provides fascinating insight into the history of African American barbers. Quincy Mills has taken a familiar institution, the neighborhood barbershop, and revealed an unknown history that utterly transforms our understanding of what we thought it was.


Black barbershops remain a cut above - Barbertime!

Quincy Mills, a history professor at Vassar College, chronicled black-owned barbershops in his book, "Cutting Along the Color Line: Black Barbers and Barber Shops in America."
In the 19th century, most black-owned barbershops served white clients exclusively. Wealthy white businessmen and politicians in the South refused to get a haircut next to a black man, Mills said.

The barbershop is akin to the church, a bastion of social activism, said Quincy T. Mills, author of "Cutting Along the Color Line: Black Barbers and Barber Shops in America."
"When you lose those kinds of central institutions, you lose a community's cohesion, you lose this gathering spot," said Mills, who is also an Africana studies professor at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. However, black barbershops are businesses. And that fact is often overshadowed by its social role, Mills said.

The barbershop is akin to the church, a bastion of social activism, said Quincy T. Mills, author of "Cutting Along the Color Line: Black Barbers and Barber Shops in America."
"When you lose those kinds of central institutions, you lose a community's cohesion, you lose this gathering spot," said Mills, who is also an Africana studies professor at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. However, black barbershops are businesses. And that fact is often overshadowed by its social role, Mills said. "Final Cut is a clear example of a business owner who is looking at a different market and a different model for a black-owned barbershop," he added. Gentrification in places like, Harlem, have played a role, leaving barbers without their traditional customer base, Mills said. "Black barbers began to think about how they should situate their shops in a changing community and what kind of marketing decisions to make to stay in business," he said.
