DID YOU KNOW
The University of Louisville offers free online guides to two Louisville civil rights tours: a self-guided tour of Louisville civil rights history, compiled by the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research, and a trail tour of downtown markers noting civil demonstration spots near businesses that refused to serve African Americans. The College of Arts and Sciences developed both tours with community partners.
