This is a bittersweet, emotional, and beautiful conversation with Nelson Roman. Before his departure from Holyoke, and as he prepares to continue his journey in Chicago, Nelson visited the studio and we had one last conversation to reflect on all the work and accomplishments made during the past years and talk about the future.
We talked about City Council, Ward 2, local politics, community, neighborhood associations, activism, youth, LGBTQ, Nueva Esperanza, Manny, Cuyo, Chicago, the future, and shared memories and experiences.
Thank you, Nelson, for all your love, work, inspiration, and dedication to Holyoke and its people. Godspeed.
