Daddy Bruce and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Daddy Bruce Randolph remembers cutting the hair of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here’s a short documentary called “My Own Corner” produced by former Boulder Community Media producer Yu Miao. The project is her final University of Colorado broadcast journalism project.

The film features 80-year old Bruce Randolph Jr. of Boulder, Colorado. Bruce owns a barbecue and catering business at the corner of 20th and Arapahoe.

He is the son of community activist and grassroots philanthropist Bruce Randolph Sr.

Before getting into the restaurant business Daddy Bruce Jr. was a barber in North Denver. He recounts cutting the hair of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
