Whether it’s a barber shop or a high-priced salon, something about the setting has always lent itself to indulgence in confidences.
Now, look at this.
A new approach to get information about the high abortion rate among black women in the U.S. to thousands of people was launched at a trade show for barbers and hair stylists in Atlanta over the weekend, reports Christina Martin of Bound4Life.
According to the organizers of the “Samson Project” – named for the long-haired Nazirite of the Old Testament – over 1,000 people committed to watching their DVD, and talking about abortion’s tragic impact on the black community in their shops.
At a booth set up among displays of blow dryers, hair buzzers and samples of creams and lotions at the Bronner Brothers Int. Hair show, the Samson Project offered something completely different. Under a banner reading “Life Talks,” pro-life workers handed out folders with information on the disproportionately high abortion rates for black women, a copy of MAAFA 21, the documentary on black genocide in 21st century America, and a window decal for their shops.
“If those passing agreed to watch the movie and talk about abortion in their shops, they would receive the folder and the decal to put in their window declaring to their customers they were willing to talk about this issue,” said Christina Martin, who is the director of Bound4Life Atlanta, and who worked the crowd at the trade show…
“Do your part and share the truth about abortion with your stylist or barber,” Christina urged her readers. “I did, and she was eager to hear the information…Let’s take every step we can to get this conversation beyond the four walls of the church and into every sphere of society!”
By all means.
