"African American Heritage Guide: history, art & entertainment," Lexington, KY

(start date: 2010) The African American Heritage Guide was published by the Isaac Scott Hathaway Museum, Inc. in Lexington, KY, and funded in part by the Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau. Included are 14 historic districts that may be viewed on a walking or driving tour. The majority of the districts are profiled in the publication, along with a map on the center pages. The work also contains horse racing history, including brief biographies of trainers and jockeys; cemetery entries, rural community entries; and information on public art and public events. The booklet also provides a very informative overview of the individuals who owned the homes and businesses featured in the publication. See also M. Davis, "Booklet full of black history - Heritage Guide painstakingly researched," Lexington Herald-Leader, 2/11/2010, City/Region section, p. A3. Copies of the African American Heritage Guide are available at the University of Kentucky Libraries.
