A part of Lexington’s past that’s too often invisible will be coming to light with a walking tour of black history.
Together Lexington, a coalition of 17 businesses and organizations seeking ways to improve understanding and quality of life, is putting $55,000 into interpretive signs at sites associated with slavery, Reconstruction, segregation and civil rights.
The idea grew from Together Lexington’s listening sessions called Courageous Conversations. The group also organized a workshop about how to expunge felony convictions and will help sponsor Picnic with the Police on May 20 at Douglass Park.
