About the Gallery of Great Black Kentuckians
The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights in 1970 introduced the Gallery of Great Black Kentuckians, an educational program that uses biographical posters and bookmarks to recognize Kentucky African Americans who have made unique accomplishments, or who have helped the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the nation by breaking racial, professional or other barriers, or whose stories have been significant in state history. Students, educators and members of the public enjoy the Gallery posters and bookmarks. They are widely used by schools and libraries as tools to bring Kentucky African American role models and Kentucky history into classrooms and to the public.
