Standing in the middle of his Lemon Grove warehouse and office, Willie Morrow slows his voice down from its usual brisk clip and explains what he’s been doing all these years.

At a hale 71 years old, he’s also an inventor, writer, business owner, historian, newspaper publisher and a self-taught chemist who is seen as a pioneer in the field of African-American hair care.
