March on Frankfort
In March 1964, more than 10,000 people from across Kentucky rallied at the state capitol in Frankfort in support of a bill desegregating public accommodations then being considered by the General Assembly. A group of 32 young people also conducted a hunger strike in the General Assembly galleries for a week after the rally. The bill never made it out of committee during that session, which ended just a few weeks after the march, but a strong state civil rights bill passed in 1966.
