C’Lest Lanier, Kentucky Center for African American Heritage

C’Lest Lanier is the director of the planned Kentucky Center for African American Heritage. The goal for this new museum and community center is to enhance the public’s knowledge of the history, heritage, and cultural contributions of African Americans in Kentucky and Southern Indiana.

In addition to preserving the traditions and accomplishments of the past, the center will be a vital, contemporary institution, providing space for performances of all types. Visitors will choose from a variety of activities, including poetry readings, concerts, and plays. Schoolchildren will participate in interactive exhibits designed to expand the mind and feed the soul. And groups and associations will be encouraged to rent rooms for meetings, dinners, and forums.
