    Mike Swindell has a half century of experience and service to the public in New Bern.

    Swindell is the owner of Mike's Barbershop on Queen Street. He has been cutting hair at the same establishment for 50 years. Over that period of time, he said he's been blessed enough to meet many people.

    "I met a lot of good people, I met more good people than bad and if it weren’t for good people like all of you there wouldn’t be no Mikes Barbershop," Swindell said. "I’m still happy and still glad I’m able to come."

    Swindell has a long and interesting history of serving the public and hopes to continue to do the same for many more years. Click the above video to learn more as part of our Black History Honors series.
