    it screams late seventies, early eighties.

    it speaks to a time when we owned businesses that we, as a people, supported. it also speaks to a time when we came together as a people...and rejoiced in our blackness. there are many other connotations, negative and positive, that could be applied to it, but that's what I see.

    While it is a nice piece.....the artist is actually showing you "ladies" all into themselves while there are two neglected kids in the foreground.

    3, and they belong to their parents and not to a tribe. A barbershop or a beauty salon is no place for toddlers to be running around loose or unattended.

    each child has an adult nearby. BTW : it is a work of art, not a instruction diagram.
