1964 Civil Rights March on Frankfort (Kentucky) Oral History Project

Project Summary

On March 5, 1964, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Jackie Robinson, and many of Kentucky's civil rights leaders marched with an estimated 10,000 people to the Kentucky state capitol to peacefully demonstrate against segregation and discrimination in Kentucky. The march helped the passage of the Kentucky Civil Rights Act in 1966 that made discrimination illegal in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This is a series of interviews that explore that day, the March's impact on the passage of Kentucky's Civil Rights Act, and personal recollections of Civil Rights in Kentucky.
