In 1998, the Kentucky Oral History Commission began a multi-year project to document the civil rights movement in Kentucky from 1930 to 1975 through oral history interviews. Based on those interviews, this documentary explores Kentucky's civil rights history and presents the personal experiences of men and women who recall life in a segregated society and the struggle to bring about social justice. From well-known figures such as Georgia Davis Powers, Gov. Edward T. Breathitt, Anne Braden, and Julian Bond to student protesters and community leaders, the program presents a range of experiences. Produced by Arthur Rouse and Joan Brannon for the Kentucky Oral History Project.
