Our touring map of Historic Black Berea will be used to educate the public, including children in the local schools, about the achievements, contributions and heritage of African Americans who lived and worked in the southern part of Madison County (KY) since the end of the Civil War . This historic project promotes the conservation of African-American traditions and culture by our process of getting community involvement in identifying elderly Kentucky African Americans to be interviewed and in locating documents and artifacts that could be useful in compiling the final. A copy and transcript of each audio taped oral interview will be deposited in Berea College’s Hutchins Library Special Collections and Archives for future researchers interested in African Americans studies. Having a map, audio tapes and picture album book will provide a quick reference to encourage more public agencies and private institutions to incorporate the African-American influence when developing projects and programs related to the history and culture of the Commonwealth
