Opportunities and the Future of Russell

Wednesday, May 15, 2019, 1:00 AM

Join the Western Library as we partner with the Filson Historical Society in presenting part three of their series "Notable Louisville Neighborhoods and the People Who Put Them on the Map – Opportunities and the Future of Russell." This program seeks to connect people with their hyper-local history in a meaningful way. Originally a fashionable suburb with white and black working-class housing, Russell evolved into Louisville’s foremost African American neighborhood by the 1940s, boasting a well-defined business district and an expansive residential area.
