In 2005, The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage opened with its mission: “to enhance the public’s knowledge of the history, heritage, and cultural contributions of African Americans in Kentucky.“
Ms. Sylvia Johnson, one of the leaders of Manual’s E.T.H.I.C.’s, brainstorm with a couple of the student leaders Andria McCravy (11), and Amber Calhoun(12).
