Panel Session: Researching African American Roots in Kentucky

Michael Denis, Yvonne Giles, Reinette Jones, Alicestyne Turley and Juanita White make up our panel of experts on Kentucky African American genealogy and history. They will discuss Kentucky-specific strategies and resources for researching African American ancestors.
Co-sponsored by KHS and the African American Genealogy Group of Kentucky.

The session will take place in Keeneland Gallery, site of the “Kentucky Freetowns” photo exhibit.

Plan to come for the exhibit’s opening event at 11 a.m. to hear from Zion Hill resident Isaac Hughes, whose mother was among Morrison’s subjects, and help identify the people and places of Zion Hill, Sugar Hill, Midway, Lexington, Frankfort, Louisville and possibly elsewhere, that Morrison did not document.

Pre-Registration is not required for either session.

Admission: Free for KHS members, AAGGKY members OR part of the KHS’ general admission. For more information, please call 502-564-1792, ext. 4460, or e-mail khsrefdesk@ky.gov.
