Before the Memories Fade: Kentucky Interviews

Part of what makes this film so fun and exciting is talking with the little known people whose grass roots efforts were a huge part of the movement. These people put their lives on the line without any national coverage and fought to end segregation. The “Foot Soldiers” as they are called made and fuelled the movement and their stories are powerful. Early in July I interviewed some Foot Soldiers in Lexington, Kentucky. Pictured below are Robert Jefferson, Ronald Berry, and P.G. Peeples Sr.
