The UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center exhibit for Black History Month is titled “The Civil Rights Movement in the Bluegrass, 1960-1967.” The exhibit explores the civil rights movement in Lexington and Frankfort from 1960 to 1967 through rare photographs, documents, and biographies from the collections of the SCRC. The photos and artifacts will remain on display until mid-March on the first floor of Margaret I. King Library.
