Kentucky Historical Society Special Hours and New Exhibit
MLK Day activities will include make-and-take crafts and performances by local school choirs and dancers. Younger visitors can enjoy themed scavenger hunts through KHS’s signature exhibit, “A Kentucky Journey,” and story-time readings that highlight the accomplishments of African Americans and their impact on Kentucky’s history.
In addition, a Community Engagement Fair will feature local organizations introducing ways to get involved in service, and KHS will offer tours of the Old State Capitol. The Martin F. Schmidt Research Library will be open, too.
The MLK Day celebration at KHS includes the opening of “Photographing Freetowns: African American Kentucky through the Lens of Helen Balfour Morrison, 1935-1946,” an adaptation of the Chicago Newberry Library’s exhibit of the same name. Morrison’s photos document Kentucky African American life in the 1930s and 1940s, revealing the dignity, independence and strength of the close-knit descendants of the freedmen who settled these towns after the Civil War. The exhibit will run through Oct. 20.
MLK Day hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. A full listing of the day’s events can be found on the KHS web site.
