Larchmont, Mamaroneck Honor Dr. King

Civil rights leader and Senior Pastor Emeritus of New York’s Riverside Church, Dr. James A. Forbes spoke Wednesday night  of racial economic discrimination and the loss to this country by the underestimation of minorities at the Larchmont and Mamaroneck 25th Martin Luther King, Jr. public celebration at the Hommocks Auditorium.

John Gitlitz, a social-activist and Purchase College professor from Mamaroneck Village, who helped safeguard local immigrant rights, will received the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Award, and Paula Eisenberg and Dr. Judy Silberstein, the two founders of the all-volunteer Larchmont Gazette, the community’s first digital newspaper, were given a special tribute.
