Website Launched To Celebrate African Americans In Horse Industry

Feb 11, 2021

In 2018 the International Museum of the Horse at the Kentucky Horse Park opened Black Horsemen of the Kentucky Turf, a permanent exhibit to celebrate the forgotten contributions of African Americans to the horse industry in Kentucky. Some three years later a companion interactive website, Chronicle of African Americans in the Horse Industry, has been launched to collect more rare and vital information on this aspect of our signature sport. WUKY’s Alan Lytle recently spoke about the ongoing project with IMH Director Amy Beisel.
