Al Mathieu, a Brownsville, Brooklyn, native aids his community however he can.

“Watching youth grow up, transitioning into things that jeopardize their lives, getting shot and killed made me want to give more to the community,” said Al.

As an advocate for the youth and for knowing Black history and the connections we’ve had from the past to the present, Al taught Native American history for a year and then went on to start his own barber shop business.
