J. Blaine Hudson, co-author of Two Centuries of Black Louisville: A Photographic History, gave a tour of locations in Louisville which were important to the history of blacks in Louisville. He talked about the slave trade, black troops during the Civil War, civil rights protests, and the black business district in Louisville.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Louisville, Kentucky, on June 8-13 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
