Who is a Kentuckian? Join us for a VIRTUAL First Friday presentation!  (Kentucky Events)
12:00 pm
At Your Home on Your Computer
 
WHERE: It's virtual! Join us for FREE on Zoom!
Since Kentucky’s first immigrants traveled through the Cumberland Gap from Virginia, the commonwealth has welcomed newcomers from around the globe seeking to make a home in Kentucky. Join us as writers Jack and Angene Wilson invite us to consider different perspectives on this important topic.
The Wilsons will present concepts and examples from their new book, Voices of African Immigrants in Kentucky: Migration, Identity, and Transnationality, co-authored with Francis Musoni and Iddah Otieno. Come and join the conversation!
Copies of Voices of African Immigrants in Kentucky: Migration, Identity, and Transnationality can be purchased here.
This event is FREE and will take place online using Zoom. To register, please email Carol Easterly at carol.easterly@ky.gov to receive instructions about how to connect.
Partner Organizations: This program is being funded in part by the Kentucky Humanities Council, PNC, Judy Rhoads, the Cralle Foundation, Christina Lee Brown, the R.C. Durr Foundation, Farmers State Bank, and the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels. We thank these organizations for their support.
