“My Barber’s Place,” 801 Nebraska Ave., and “Kitchen for the Poor,” 650 Vance Ave., contributed their services to honor Preacher Moe on his birthday Saturday, May 14th. Preacher Moe (Elder Mosley) recently transitioned, and giving haircuts was a hobby he enjoyed. He opened his first barbershop in 1977 on Central Avenue with Chris Vaughn.
His daughter, Patti Henry stated that “continuing my dad’s hobby of giving haircuts to patrons from the community seem like the perfect avenue to continue his legacy. This tangible gesture is something that I am sure my dad would have appreciated. It feels good to give back.”
Special thanks to Manuel Black and Lawrence Glover from “My Barber’s Place” and Henrietta Savage from “Kitchen for the Poor,” for helping me with this event to honor my dad. “I am already looking forward to next year’s event.”
