“We recognize that many families are trying to make ends meet in preparation for the upcoming school year, and there are several expenses, seen and unforeseen. Some of these families simply just need help.

“It is to that end that 5 Star Barbershop has lead the charge, with other volunteer barbers in the community, to provide complimentary haircuts for boys between the ages of 5 and 18.”

“A new feature this year is the introduction of services for school-aged girls in our community, which includes hair braiding. Leading the experience for girls are the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc; we are truly grateful for their commitment.

“The theme for the Extravaganza this year is ‘we believe in you.’ This is our way of communicating to our students that the entire community of Bermuda are behind them.”

    Nobody wants to ask why the need is so great within the black community?
    Twenty Years ago we did not even see these types of events in our country.

    And without asking that question too many come across as if they are simply looking to pat themselves on the back till next year by handing out a few school bags.

    The power of positive thinking alone will not provide the answer to what is a structural problem. It is time that these well meaning groups begin to focus on the causes as much as they do the symptoms.
