Photographing Freetowns: Exhibit Special Event

Photographing Freetowns: African American Kentucky through the Lens of Helen Balfour Morrison, has its official opening with a doubleheader event today.

At 11 a.m., 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.

At 2 p.m., Michael Denis, Yvonne Giles, Reinette Jones, Alicestyne Turley and Juanita White will talk about Kentucky-specific strategies and resources for locating your African American ancestors. KHS and the African American Genealogy Group of Kentucky are co-sponsors.

Both sessions will take place in Keeneland Gallery, site of the exhibit.

Pre-Registration is not required for either session.
