A Kentucky Journey--African American Heritage. Teacher's Guide.
Kentucky Historical Society, Frankfort.
This guide to the core exhibit of the Kentucky History Center (Frankfort) focuses on African American history in the commonwealth of Kentucky. The guide extracts text from seven of the exhibit's chronological areas and lists environments, displays, and other exhibit features to help students understand some of the events that shaped the African American experience in Kentucky. It is not a comprehensive history of African American life in the commonwealth but rather a guide to the African American content in an exhibit that covers 12,000 years of Kentucky economic, social, and cultural history. The guide is divided into three sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Diagram of 'A Kentucky Journey'"; and (3) "Exhibit Guides" (Area C: Kentucky Frontier; Area D: Antebellum Age; Area E: War and Aftermath; Area F: Continuity and Change; Area G: A New Century; Area H: Depression and War; Area I: Many Sides of Kentucky).
