Local History at the Hudson Area Library

February is Black History Month, and, as part of the of observance, the Hudson Area Library's Local History Speaker Series and SBK Social Justice Center's Barbershop Talks will collaborate to present a program titled "The History of the Black Community in Hudson," on Thursday, February 8, at 6 p.m.

Longtime residents will speak about their roots in Hudson or their migration to Hudson. They will share their remembrances of the Hudson they grew up in and discuss what the city is like now. The recollections of family, community, and civic life will be explored in the context of such public affairs issues as education, criminal justice, health and human services, and quality of life, with an emphasis the experience of minorities and people of color.

The discussion will be followed by refreshments and a question-and-answer period. Audience members are invited to share their own memories and sense of community in Hudson. For more information, email, call 518 828-1792, ext. 101, or visit the main desk at the library. The Hudson Area Library is located at 51 North Fifth Street.
