Representative Benjamin Swan: Pop Diesel!

My first YouTube video! In this clip, I have featured Mr. Hal Swan giving a talk about his father, Massachusetts State Representative Benjamin Swan of Springfield. Hal recalls a story from his past with his children and relates that story to his father, referring to him as “Pop Diesel.” This talk was given on Thursday, February 14, 2013 at the Springfield Museums in Springfield, Massachusetts. Was really great to be there. Here is the link:

My apologies for the sound, which is not syncing with the video; it’s my first YouTube video. I’ll try to fix it and then post again, but for now it is really great to see black fathers and sons loving and supporting each other. Go Hal!
