The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights created the Gallery of Great Black Kentuckians poster series in 1970. The colorful, biographical pieces are used by teachers and libraries to introduce students and the public to the accomplishments of Kentucky African Americans whose stories have often been left out of traditional histories and text books.
