Walking Tour: Before King Came to Town: Resistance to Oppression In KY 1830-1910

March 2 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Designed to complement the upcoming 60th anniversary of the March on Frankfort, this tour takes you on a journey of resistance and triumph. When we talk about Civil Rights, we tend to think about the time after WWII through the 1960s. However, these struggles have been ongoing since Kentucky’s beginnings. Walking through historic downtown Frankfort and the Old State Capitol, we will recount ways that enslaved and oppressed people fought the injustices they faced during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Join us for this hour-long walking tour that begins and ends at the Old State Capitol, rain or shine.

The tour will take place before the March on Frankfort film screening begins at the Old State Capitol.
