With the rise of black deaths at the hands of police officers, Charlotte barber Shaun Corbett developed the idea for a program called Cops & Barbers. The program began as a series of forums held in barbershops where young black men and cops talk to each other. It has since grown to include community service activities. The program gained national attention and President Obama’s office recognized it as a model for establishing relationships between cops and young black men.
