Living the Story, the Civil Rights Movement in Kentucky (video documentary)

Living the Story is a documentary video, produced by Kentucky Educational Television (KET). The following comes from the website. "In Living the Story: The Civil Rights Movement in Kentucky, individual Kentuckians tell their own stories of what they saw, heard, experienced, and did then. Some were leaders and organizers, but others were simply people who wanted to enroll in a different school, move to a new neighborhood, or shop at a downtown department store. ... Living the Story is not a comprehensive or definitive history of the civil rights era in Kentucky. Its purposes are to give contemporary audiences a sense of what it was like to be part of the civil rights movement, to encourage further exploration of the subject, and to inspire young people by illustrating the role people their age played in the movement."  For more information visit the Living the Story website at KET (Kentucky Educational Television).
