When we talk about the civil rights movement of the 50’s & 60’s we always hear names like Evers, King, Young, Parksand Jackson.  And cities like Memphis, Atlanta, Macon, Selma, and Birmingham.We never hear about Tuscaloosa Al.  To be honest before being offered a job here I never knew Tuscaloosa existed.

Thomas Linton is just one of the many people that I have learned about that played a significant role in the civil rights movement that lives and has a business here in Tuscaloosa.

Mr. Linton, a Minister owns a barbershop that’s still in operation today in Tuscaloosa. Read about Mr. Thomas Linton here.
