From Saturday, January 17th, through Monday, the 19th, Saratoga Springs is honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This year's celebration in the Spa City will feature a keynote speaker, a film screening, performers, and community service projects. 

WAMC's Lucas Willard spoke with Hollyday Hammond, chair of the 2015 Martin Luther King Day Planning Commission in Saratoga Springs, who said this year's events come during a period of national conversation about race and social justice.

Lucas Willard is a reporter and host at WAMC Northeast Public Radio, which he joined in 2011.
