Film Screening: Kut to be the Best – The Last Black Barbershop in San Luis Obispo
February 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
From the organizers:
Be among the first see this original short documentary about the closing of the last Black-owned barbershop in San Luis Obispo.
Historically, the barbershop has provided a crucial sense of place for the Black community; and this is especially true on the Central Coast. For nine years, Terry Guillford owed and operated Kut to be the Best, the only Black-owned barbershop in San Luis Obispo. A multicultural yet unapologetically Black space in a predominantly White community, Kut to be the Best was an essential cultural outlet for many.
Directed and edited by SLO County raised filmmaker Justice Whitaker and produced by San Luis Obispo local Courtney Haile — co-founder of R.A.C.E. Matters SLO County; Kut to be the Best is part of the larger event and exhibit series entitled BELONGING: Local Expressions of Black Empowerment and Possibility.
