Since 1778, African-Americans in Louisville have risen above numerous challenges to create a vibrant culture in the face of slavery and later, segregation. This history at times influenced politics and culture in America, enabling the African American Community to take advantage of the circumstances and advance their interests.  Two Centuries of Black Louisville: A Photographic History tells this story through images and words. Bringing to life a community that is virtually unknown to recent generations, this is a tale that we can all be proud of, regardless of race. After the lecture, the book will be available for purchase and you will have the opportunity to have it signed by the authors. J. Blaine Hudson is the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Louisville. He is currently working on a book about African-American history in Louisville. Mervin Aubespin is a retired associate editor of The Courier-Journal and a community activist. Kenneth Clay is an entrepreneur and formerly the vice-president of the Kentucky Center for the Arts. Reservations are suggested.
