A new barbering school known as "54th and Cutz" is working with young men in some of Northeast D.C.'s most troubled neighborhoods. The school is housed in the Richardson Dwellings public housing community, and serves teens who've been through the juvenile justice system. Kavitha Cardoza explores the role barbers play in the African-American community and meets some of the apprentices at 54th and Cutz.
