On March 5, students have a unique opportunity to participate in an educational and historic event, the 50th anniversary celebration of the March on Frankfort.

In celebration of the 1964 march, thousands will gather once again in Frankfort. The commemorative march and accompanying rally will be from 10 a.m. through approximately noon (Eastern Standard Time). Participants are asked to meet at the corner of Second St. and Capitol Ave. at 9:30 a.m. to line up in order to proceed to the State Capitol building. For more information on the march, contact Mary Ann Taylor of the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights toll-free at (800) 292-5566.

High school students and young adults are encouraged to participate in a recreation of the march and will be positioned in the front sections.

As part of the Governor’s Mansion Centennial Celebration, the Kentucky Historical Society is sponsoring a multimedia exhibit in the Capitol Education Center next door to the Governor’s Mansion. This is free and open to the public.

The Capital City Museum has developed an exhibition which will open to the public at 6 p.m. on the evening of March 4 and run until August 31.
