An Interview With Sharon Morgan, Saratoga Springs MLK Day Keynote Speaker


In recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Saratoga Springs is hosting a series of events dedicated to race and diversity in America.

Today, author Sharon Leslie Morgan is speaking at the Saratoga Springs Public Library at 2 p.m. and will be the weekend’s keynote speaker Monday afternoon at the Saratoga Springs Music Hall tomorrow at 2 p.m.

Morgan and WAMC’s Lucas Willard spoke about her book, Gather At The Table, co-authored Thomas Norman DeWolf.

The book documents the conversation and friendship between Morgan, a descendent of slavery, and DeWolf, a descendent of a family of slave-traders. DeWolf documented his own journey of understanding his history and race in America today in the documentary Traces of the Trade.

Morgan was asked how she met DeWolf.

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