Description

As part of Hudson Area Library’s Local History Speaker series and the SBK Social Justice Center’s Barbershop Talks there will be a program at the library on “The History of the Black Community in Hudson” on Thursday, February 8 at 6pm. Local long time Hudson residents will speak on their roots in and/or migration to Hudson. They will discuss remembrances of  the Hudson they grew up in and what Hudson is like now. These local recollections of family, community and civic life will be explored in relation to public affairs issues around the topics of education, criminal justice, health and human services and quality of life on the local, state and national level with an emphasis on how it affects minorities and people of color. A question and answer period and refreshments will follow the discussion and audience members are invited to share their own memories and sense of community in Hudson.
