The Robert H. Jackson Center is thrilled to welcome back Dr. Allida Black for its 15th Annual Young Readers Program. The Young Readers Program uses literature to engage young people with their world by inspiring them to read and hone their analytical skills and writing ability. This year, the Jackson Center has invited Dr. Allida Black to speak to students on Friday, May 17, 2019 at the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts at 10:00 am and 1:00pm about the relationship between the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the work of groups such as Amnesty International, and J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. The event is free, but preregistration is required by phone at 716-483-6646 or online at
