By Wanda Washington, Greater Campbellsville United
Greater Campbellsville United received a grant from the Kentucky Historical Society to transcribe 15 previously recorded oral interviews in the African American Heritage of Columbia/Adair County Oral History Collection at the Kentucky Oral History Commission.
These compelling interviews, recorded in 2013-2014, tell about African American life in Adair County, where businesses, homes, communities, and schools were located and how they changed over time, their life experiences, Civil Rights activities, segregation and integration.
These transcripts will be used to prepare a manuscript that will document their heritage for future generations and may be used to develop an African American Driving Tour Brochure of Adair County
