Special thanks to Nia Grace, "Director of Marketing and Community Outreach for BNN TV for helping to make this video available.
Also discussed in the portion of the longer video that was edited out was a brief discussion of Hubert Harrison's grandson, Ray Richardson (1946-1971), the former producer of "Say Brother" on WGBH in Boston.

Note: The presentation and Q and A lasted over 2 hours. The TV station edited it down to this length. There was much more presentation and discussion. Also, the crowd was remarkable since the event was at the highpoint of the big snowstorm, the governor was telling people to stay off the roads, and the public library closed early (only leaving a door open to the auditorium where this event was held). Those who made it to and stayed through the event were determined and this was manifested in their interest during the presentation, the lengthy Q and A period (some of which was cut), and much informal discussion that went on into the evening.
