The presentation features a selection of audio and video clips from the library's collections, including the Black Legacy Association of Columbia County (BLACC) Oral History Collection. Sheffer, along with Leo Bower, Shantytown historian, and Peter Tenerowicz, past president of the Hudson Power Boat Association, will discuss these excerpts and photos of the river from the library's collection, and share their own stories of how the river has impacted the residents of Hudson.
