“Like family dinners, community dinners bring people together to share experiences and connect with others. Sharing a meal supports healthy eating and helps to develop social skills in children.” Said Emily Flynn, Coordinator for Live Well Kingston.
Black History Month is a celebration that pays tribute to the legacy and contributions of African-Americans in Kingston and the surrounding areas with art exhibits, performances, spoken word, dance, lectures, workshops and the 2nd Annual Sojourner Truth Life Walk.
