520    This work is a reassessment of black beauty salons as 
       vital sites for social change. Looking through the lens of
       black business history, it shows how black beauticians in 
       the Jim Crow era parlayed their economic independence and 
       access to a public community space into platforms for 
       activism. The author argues that the beauty industry 
       played a crucial role in the creation of the modern black 
       female identity and that the seemingly frivolous space of 
       a beauty salon actually has stimulated social, political, 
       and economic change. From the founding of the National 
       Negro Business League in 1900 and onward, African 
       Americans have embraced the entrepreneurial spirit by 
       starting their own businesses, but black women's forays 
       into the business world were overshadowed by those of 
       black men. With a broad scope that encompasses the role of
       gossip in salons, ethnic beauty products, and the social 
       meanings of African American hair textures, she shows how 
       African American beauty entrepreneurs built and sustained 
       a vibrant culture of activism in beauty salons and 
       schools. Enhanced by portrayals of black beauticians and 
       drawing on archival research and oral histories, this 
       woork conveys the everyday operations and rich culture of 
       black beauty salons as well as their role in building 
       community.
