Community members are remembering beloved Mobile barber, Isaac White Sr.

White, who died at the age of 99, opened White's Barber College on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in 1960.

We're told, White invested in hundreds of students, offering free training as long as they completed the coursework and secured a job. 

Watch the video to hear from one of those students.
