Smokey Hollow was an African-American community a few blocks east of the state capitol building from reconstruction through the days of segregation. Urban renewal brought the demise of the neighborhood in the 1960’s. Today a memoriam marks its existence in local history. WFSU's Mike Plummer explores the recently added Smokey Hollow Barbershop restoration and talks to childhood residents.
