Amber Duke, a recent graduate of the public history certificate program, has created an outstanding website on the Kentucky Alliance Oral History Project. You check it out here. Amber began doing oral histories with members of the Alliance as part of Dr. Tracy K’Meyer’s HIST 607 course. She continued her work and developed the website as part of a public history internship. The website provides access to oral histories, original source materials, and general information about the Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, a post-civil rights era organization committed to racial and social justice. The Alliance remains active today and continues to fight racism, police brutality, and economic injustice in Louisville and Kentucky.
In December 2011, Amber became the first graduate of the U of the public history certificate program. She now works at the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research.
