The Saratoga Springs Public Library presents: A Virtual John Brown Lives! Presentation

September 15th from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Over a century ago, the State of New York was gifted the Adirondack home of Abolitionists John and Mary Brown on the condition that it be used “for the purpose of a public park or reservation forever.” Today, John Brown Lives! is both the official friends group of the 250-acre state historic site abutting the High Peaks Forest Preserve, and a freedom education and human rights project active in the North Country. Long-time ADK members Benita Law-Diao and Jeff Jones are also JBL! board members and human rights activists. Influenced by the Black Lives Matter movement, their presentation will focus on the group’s programs and activities designed to bring fresh awareness to the Farm’s role in Adirondack, New York and U.S. history. Co-sponsored by the Adirondack Mountain Club. Please register online.

You must register for this program through the Saratoga Springs Public Library.
