Tonight the Sanford Center will hold an event at the Orpheum Theatre featuring Mitch and Emily Martin, Play It Forward, Kevin Keane, and more. The Center itself has served the Siouxland Community since the 1930’s, beginning as a settlement house for African Americans migrating north. Over time, its role in the community has expanded: setting up affordable, educational daycare; going into schools to help students and diminish gang presence; feeding families. Much of this growth happened under the directorship of George Boykin.
