Evenings Upstairs - A Distant Light: Kentucky's Journey Toward Racial Justice

Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
McCracken County Public Library

A Distant Light, Cunningham's last published book, reveals dramatic plots of murder, kidnapping and mob violence which took place in Calloway County. Through the heroic efforts of Governors A.O. Stanley, Ned Breathitt and others, the dark days of lynching and murders give way to a more positive future for all Kentuckians, regardless of color. Racial justice is set on a brighter path as Cunningham pens Kentucky's disturbing past and moves readers toward a higher ground because of historical giants who followed "a distant light."
