At Leisure's Edge: A Journey Through Kentucky's Historic Black Parks

57:28 | #0

From 1942 to 1956, Kentucky city park systems were segregated by state mandate. This program takes a look at seven historically black parks and explores how the African-American communities in Kentucky used the public spaces of parks to construct uplifting community identities despite segregation. Produced by Boyd Shearer with support from the KET Fund for Independent Production.
