‘Two Centuries of Black Louisville’ @ Ekstrom Library

June 24-Sept. 9

Ekstrom Library, U of L
2301 S. Third St. • 852-6762

In conjunction with the recent release of “Two Centuries of Black Louisville: A Photographic History,” U of L’s Photographic Archives is hosting a special exhibit of some of the images featured in the book. The photos span nearly a century from the late 1800s through the mid-1970s, and the subject matter mostly covers everyday life. Authors Merv Aubespin, Ken Clay and J. Blaine Hudson drew from several of the archives’ collections for the book, which features more than 450 photos. “The compilation of these photographs coupled with the history outlined in the text portrays a vivid account of this major part of Louisville’s history,” says curator Elizabeth Reilly. “The images on exhibit will offer a glimpse into what this book has to offer.” —Sara Havens
