Kentucky is home of two of newest sites on the historic U.S. Civil Rights Trail. The Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville and SEEK Museum in Russellville were recently added to collection of historic landmarks.
The U.S. Civil Rights Trail includes museums, churches, schools, courthouses and other sites that played an important part in social justice history. The people, locations and destinations on the trail offer a way to experience history first-hand where change happened. Three other Kentucky sites were previously added including Berea College in Berea, the Louisville Downtown Civil Rights Trail and Whitney M. Young Jr.’s birthplace in Simpsonville.
The U.S. Civil Rights Trail spans much of the South to more than 100 locations in 15 states. For more information about the U.S. Civil Rights Trail, visit CivilRightsTrail.com.
