Sing Out for Freedom

The Freedom Singers were one of the best known of the singing groups that traveled the U.S. in the 1950s and '60s spreading the civil rights message. This 1993 KET production includes performances from a concert in Louisville and interview segments in which the singers talk about their experiences in the civil rights movement. Russellville resident Charles Neblett, a founding member and the group's manager, was also the first African American elected magistrate in Logan County.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
