Sons of Toledo


Sons of Toledo is the true story of the city’s Black-owned barber shops and their work on the frontlines of their communities, especially the cost of caring for the young men who see their shops as a place of refuge from the growing threat of gun violence in their neighborhoods.

Told by, with and for members of this community, Sons of Toledo blends documentary filmmaking with a narrative thread of the lived experiences of these barbers giving too many of their young customers their final cuts
