African-American Life in Louisville

African-American Life in Louisville (Images of America: Kentucky)Louisville s African-American community dates back to the early 1800s.

Before the 1850s, many Black churches such as the Quinn Chapel A.M.E. Church were founded in the area.

Prominent African Americans, including Whitney M. Young, Woodford Porter, Frank Stanley, and Calvin Winstead, became Louisville s pioneer families in modern business and politics.

Within the pages of this volume are many of the families who worked to become institution builders and leaders in Louisville and around the world. African-American Life in Louisville covers the period from the late nineteenth century to the 1960s and focuses on the people and places in the Greater Louisville area, including Shelbyville.

Author Bruce Tyler, Associate Professor of History at the University of Kentucky, Louisville, has created this unique collection of vintage photographs as a tribute to his community.
