Airport Gallery Features Civil-Rights Tour

By Associated Press | 

Visitors to Louisville International Airport will have a chance to learn about the civil-rights history in Kentucky's largest city.

The airport's second-floor Pegasus Gallery is promoting the civil-rights past with a display continuing through March. Visitors will also be able to pick up brochures for self-guided tours of Louisville's civil-rights history.

The University of Louisville's Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research designed, created and recently revised the tour.

The tour features 22 stops, including the home sites of activists, churches, schools, the boyhood home of Muhammad Ali and the section of Fourth Street that was the scene of mass protests for open accommodations in 1961.

The self-guided tour includes a driving map and a pullout walking map for the downtown Louisville sites.
