Civil Rights History in Louisville
During the Civil Rights Movement, the deep South seemed to be the hub of the race riots and civil disobedience demonstrations which reconstructed American society, but how was Louisville affected by the protests which rocked the rest of the nation? After integration and the fair housing crisis, can Louisville say that the dream of Dr. King and the civil rights activists was realized? Join us Thursday with Raoul Cunningham, NAACP President, and Tracy E. K’Meyer, author of Civil Rights in the Gateway to the South: Louisville Kentucky 1945-1980, as we discuss Louisville’s Civil Rights History.
