Dr. King Celebration Weekend
This year’s theme is “Let’s Talk Saratoga! - Changing the Conversation.” The event lineup includes a series of conversations moderated by community leaders, clergy, activists, and experts. Families and friends of all ages will find an event or activity to plug into. MLK Saratoga’s “Our Story” Treasure Hunt, available on the website, is a self-guided adventure to unravel more of our “color-full” history of people woven into Saratoga Springs’ past, including the home (now restaurant) of the first woman of color to graduate from Skidmore College, the restaurant started by a black woman in 1938 that survived the city’s urban renewal in the late 60’s; and the site of 20th century Hasidic boarding houses and thriving Jewish commerce. Adults and kids alike will learn something new about the health and history of people who walked this land in centuries past. Please see mlksaratoga.org/celebration for complete event details and links. Registration is required for some programs with limited capacity. ww.mlksaratoga.org
