In partnership with the Kentucky Human Rights Commission and the University of Kentucky’s Office of Community Engagement, the Nunn Center is honored to celebrate the Kentucky Civil Rights Hall of Fame inductees and capture their stories in their own words. The intention of the Kentucky Civil Rights Hall of Fame Oral History Project is to educate and inspire viewers on the power of the human spirit and how it is moving our nation towards greatness.
Here is a clip from our interview with Mattie Jones recalling the influence of Senator Georgia Davis Powers on getting her involved in the Civil Rights Movement.
