In 2007, Houston founded Houston White Men’s Room, a barbershop in the Camdentown neighborhood of North Minneapolis. While this sacred space began as a barbershop, it quickly transformed into a mecca for the inclusive celebration of Black culture, human excellence and the power of community at its best.
