Louisville Tourism unveils new programming this spring that celebrates the impact of the African American contribution to the city’s history, heritage and culture.

 

With the Unfiltered Truth Collection, visitors journey back in time to learn more about the stories of the extraordinary people that built Louisville as we know it today.

Meet Louisville native and renowned bartender Tom Bullock, the first Black American to write and publish a cocktail book in 1917, at the secret Speakeasy at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. The 45-minute presentation also includes tasting premium whiskeys.

 

“Songbird of the South” is the first in The Soul of Walnut Street Experience Series at The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage. It tells the story of R&B singer Mary Ann Fisher, from her childhood to the stage at Carnegie Hall. The Frazier History Museum is developing an immersive cultural experience that navigates the unheard story of African Americans who made bourbon. “From Enslaved to Empowered” takes visitors on a journey from World War II to today. Two experiences exploring the impact of African Americans on horse racing will be offered at the Kentucky Derby Museum.

 

Other experiences are available at Locust Grove, the Roots 101 African American Museum and the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.
