SARATOGA SPRINGS — Join the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation on Monday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. for the virtual program “Urban Renewal: Through the Eyes of a Child with Joy King.” 

The program will highlight Urban Renewal in Saratoga Springs from 1962 to 1986, during what was one of the largest urban changes in the city’s history. 

The federal Urban Renewal program provided funding to clear “blighted” areas to allow for redevelopment and displaced the largely Black community from the West Side. 

Joy King, whose family has resided in Saratoga Springs for seven generations, will share her and her family’s memories. 

Additionally, there will be a screening of the documentary “Erasing Spaces and Faces: The Legacy of Urban Renewal in Saratoga Springs” from C.R.E.A.T.E. Community Studios, an organization that uses art to promote freedom, expression, personal growth, and community connection. A conversation will follow about the current initiatives that local organizations, artists, and community members are taking to foster social change. 

The program will take place on Zoom for a suggested donation of $10 or more. For additional information or to register for the virtual program visit www.saratogapreservation.org or call 518-587-5030. Everyone who pre-registers for this program will be emailed a Zoom link in advance and will receive a link to the recording. a
