Kentucky Jaycees Oral History Project | Louie B Nunn Center for Oral History - 0 views

  •  
    In 1993 and 1994, Bill McCann interviewed 35 men - including several governors - about the KY Jaycees ten years after women had been admitted to this civic organization dedicated to mentoring and supporting young leaders at the local level. No transcripts are available for us to peruse and see if they spoke about the role of women in this prestigious local club.

Celia's Land: A Historical Novel - by Georgia Davis Powers - 1 views

  •  
    Powers turned her attention to her family genealogy, trying to find out more about her great-aunt Celia Mudd, who was born into slavery but eventually inherited the rural Kentucky farm in Nelson County on which she spent all her life. Powers found a 1902 will in which Sam Lancaster, whose father had bought the farm, left all 500 acres to Georgia's Aunt Celia. Lancaster's surviving brother sued and the case went to Kentucky's highest court, yet most newspapers declined to report about it. After winning the case Celia Mudd become a local philanthropist. Powers wrote up this family history as a novel.

Making Our Voices Heard - 1999 - Genie Potter, KCW - 1 views

  •  
    The opening section of "The Future Well-Being of Women in Kentucky" published in 1999 as a response to the "Report on the Status of Women in Kentucky" - I enjoyed very much the many meetings and conversations with a diverse group of women activists from all over Kentucky that were involved in the making of this report. (NOTE: to progress through this e-book, it works best if you simply change the chapter number in the URL because the hyperlinks among pages are not always consistent.)
