Dr. Michael Hill, professor of Africana studies and English and director of the Program in Africana Studies at Washington and Lee University, will discuss "MLK and A Legacy of Collaborative Brilliance." Dr. Hill will discuss how Martin Luther King, Jr., handled the challenge of working with partners both within and outside the black community.  Analyzing King’s civil rights era strategies, he will explore their relevance in today’s society.    

Hill's talk will be followed by a question-and-answer discussion moderated by Winston Grady-Willis, professor and director of Skidmore’s Black Studies Program. 

Skidmore College is partnering with MLK Saratoga and sponsoring Dr. King Celebration Weekend events to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and his continuing legacy.

MLK Saratoga has organized an array of rich, insightful, inclusive, and challenging programs for the entire Saratoga Springs community from Friday, Jan. 14, through Monday, Jan. 17. The full program is available on the MLK Saratoga website.
