African Americans in a Pandemic

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturday mornings at 8am) we're talking to community members to collect their stories about life during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This morning my conversation with Randall Vaughn, owner of Classic Intown Barbershop which took place the week after the State of Georgia opened barber and beauty shops on April 24th.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturday mornings 8am) we're talking to community members to collect their stories about life during the COVID-19 Pandemic. I spoke with Avigbor Boyd. a fashion and beauty entrepreneur who has made her living doing natural hair. When the government shut-down came as a single mother she knew she would have to pivot.

Avignor began making masks. While she isn’t making the same amount of income she made from doing natural hair, she is making enough to make a difference for her family.
