The history of the 1964 March is well summarized by Mr. Tom Fugate of Frankfort's Capital City Museum in this brief but evocative video by Stephen Taylor. Filmed during the exhibit's opening night on March 4th, it shows some of the museum's enlarged photos, and NAACP leader Raoul Cunningham pointing out people he has known in those photos. This video, available here on YouTube, would serve well in classes and news briefs.
The present day goals of the March focus primarily on changing the fact that Kentucky is among the few states that still make it very difficult for former felons to regain the vote. The Kentucky Council of Churches joins with many other groups to say that when a person has finished serving a sentence, it is time to help that person re-enter society. Restoration to right relationship with one's community is a gospel priority. It is easy to contact legislators about voting rights here.
The Council's executive director Marian Taylor was asked to provide the closing benediction for the March 5 2014 rally. The text of that benediction is here.
