Death of the Practice and Jail for today’s Natural Hair History Challenge.
Yes, it is me Dee here at 3 on the 3 with some black history.
Ok in 1899 a man by the name of George Zeno was arrested for barbering in Minnesota. “Defendant was convicted in the municipal court of Minneapolis for violation of Laws 1897, c. 186, being “An act to regulate the practice of barbering,” etc.; and appealed from an order, Holt, J., denying a motion for a new trial. Affirmed.” The infamous case of Zeno versus the state of Minnesota in 1899.
Zeno a barber cut 2 white men hair and another white man filed a suit against him.
George Zeno was then locked in jail until the judge ruled on his respiratory case.
Then respa rocity was declared in multi-state registrations, permits, and licenses.
All these occupational licensing regulations would need to become interchangeable across States.
No because of this law hair braiders across all state lines will soon be able to apply for licensure on a federal level.
This is why the cosmetology regimes have deregulated the cosmetology boards to allow licensure for her braids.
You think if relaxers and cosmetologist on buying gallons of relaxer anymore that Revlon, Clairol, and any of the other big-name brand manufacturers are happy.
No, when all of the market of 1 billion dollars has been saturated amongst minority groups Asians, Africans, and anybody else that are immigrants to America.
The Asians Supply her, the Africans sew it in or braid it in, the black Americans sew it in or braids it on, the Asians are doing the nails, the Indian’s are doing the threading all these are great people from different countries embarking on economic success in America.
He’s listening and watching the video being recorded in real time and he even suggests one of the hair stylists demonstrate hair braiding… oops 😬 “alternative hair designer 👩🏽🎨 ” on one of the house committee member.
Below is a video from our buddy Robert Burns of Sound Off Louisiana!, who covered the Senate committee hearing and in fact participated in it – you’ll see Burns dismantle Barrow and the proponents of her bill in a devastating fashion.
Hey, how is it going today? It’s me Dee at 3 from BraidersCourse.com. Today we will be talking about Madame CJ Walker and Annie Malone two of America’s African American great pioneers. First off is Madame CJ Walker Miss Walker first begin the creation of her products in the year 1888. She found herself divorced with a daughter living in St. Louis Missouri where she begins more like an ambassador program for African American recently freed women. This ambassador/marketing program consisted of selling Mrs. Walker’s premium hair products. The women begin selling the products from state-to-state creating at what we would call today a multi-state membership of natural hairstylist. Madame Walker also went on to create several beauty salons, several beauty schools and a manufacturing warehouse for her products. While living in St Louis she became good friends with Annie Malone. Annie Malone manufactured and patented the pressing comb. This pressing comb is still used today. Many people believe Madame Walker invented the pressing comb. However, it was Annie Malone who patent the pressing comb and has a first trademark for the pressing comb. These two women left a legacy today that many women are mimicking today. Madame Walker was the first woman on the stock market. She also owned a home on the Hudson River next to Rockefeller. Annie Malone is known for her childhood home in St.Louis Missouri she was a great philanthropist and to this day there is a parade the Annie Malone parade.
