Uncle Jeds Barbershop by Margaree King Mitchell

Sarah Jeans Uncle Jed was the only black barber in the county. He had a kind heart and a warm smile. And he had a dream.Living in the segregated South of the 1920s, where most people were sharecroppers. Uncle Jed had to travel all over the county to cut his customers hair. He lived for the day when he could open his very own barbershop. But it was a long time, and many setbacks, from five-year-old Sarah Jeans emergency operation to the bank failures of the Great Depression, before the joyful day when Uncle Jed opened his shiny new shop -- and twirled a now grown-up Sarah Jean around in the barber chair.With James Ransomes richly colored paintings brimming with life, this is a stirring story of dreams long deferred and finally realized.
