The occasion was named “Vernon Winfrey Appreciation Day,” and it featured a barber chair in recognition of his lengthy career as a barber and nearly 50 years of running his own business in Nashville.

Vernon was a trustee for Tennessee State University and a member of the Nashville Metro City Council for 16 years.

Winfrey spent her early years in Milwaukee with her mother, Vernita Lee, who passed away in 2018, and in Kosciusko, Mississippi, the hometown of her father.

However, she also lived with her father in Nashville, between the ages of seven and nine and during her teens.

“If I hadn’t been sent to my father (when I was 14), I would have gone in another direction,” Winfrey told the Washington Post in 1986.

“I could have made a good criminal. I would have used these same instincts differently.”
