Main Library Bernheim Gallery: SEPTEMBER 25 - NOVEMBER 9
Black Freedom, White Allies, and Red Scare: Louisville, 1954
This year marks the 60th anniversary of a home purchase, bombing, and trial that shook Louisville and the nation. A new exhibit at the Louisville Free Public Library—Black Freedom, White Allies, and Red Scare—presented in partnership with U of L’s Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research, the Courier-Journal, and U of L Libraries, chronicles the 1954 bombing of a Shively home and the sedition trial of civil rights activists Anne and Carl Braden.
Join us this Wednesday, October 1 at 7 p.m. for an opening reception at the Main Library. The evening will feature an introduction to the exhibit by Braden biographer Dr. Cate Fosl, followed by a preview of the sedition trial reenactment directed by U of L theater professor Amy Steiger. Students from the university's public history program will also be on hand to record oral histories.
In addition to the exhibit, LFPL will offer related programming, including a screening of the documentary film Southern Patriot followed by a panel discussion on Tuesday, October 21 at the Main Library.
