KY Afield Outdoors: 1967 - Kentucky's Red November
A KY Afield Outdoors audio documentary observing the 50th anniversary of the 1967 protest hike leading to the undamming of Red River Gorge. They write, "On November 18, 1967, one of Kentucky's most scenic and treasured wilderness areas was poised to become Red River Lake. The pivotal visit by U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas placed the local controversy into the national spotlight. Covered by CBS News, TIME Magazine and others, the battle endured for years between environmental factions, dam proponents, as well as state and federal officials...with Powell County flood control in the balance. Today, this chapter of Red River Gorge and Kentucky's natural history is largely forgotten, but is retold by the voices that made it happen."
