On Saturday, February 19 at 2 PM, SCHR will present a program entitled “The Lattimore Circle” by Julie O’Connor and Lorie Wies, both retired librarians with a deep interest in local Black History. They will present the saga of the Lattimore family over several generations in which they were key figures in the establishment of a viable and thriving Black community in Albany and became important links in the anti-slavery and abolition movements. They continued their influence after moving to the Town of Moreau and Saratoga Springs during the mid-19th century. Julie and Lorie will share their research on this fascinating family.
This program will be presented in the Long Room of Brookside Museum in BallstonSpa, and also available on Facebook Live.
