Feb 19, 2021

It’s Black History Month, and in this edition of WUKY's award winning history program Saving Stories Alan Lytle and Nunn Center for Oral History Director Doug Boyd revisit what it was like for African American students shortly after Lyman T. Johnson successfully desegregated the state’s flagship university; particularly the classroom dynamic for these young people. Lincoln County native George Logan, one of the first African American students to attend UK talks about the racism he encountered back in 1951.
