Black Graduates of Kentucky (periodical)

Beginning in 1970, the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights published the title Black Graduates of Kentucky. It was an annual publication that was very unusual because it was a government directory that attempted to list the African American college and university graduates in the entire state. Most other publications of this type were not produced by the state, but rather by higher education institutions in specific states, and the publications focused on the individual institution's graduates only. The Kentucky directory title changed in 1994 to African American Graduates of Kentucky Directory. The publication ceased in 1998.
