“But you were here. You existed. Unknown no longer.” — Hannah Drake, “Finding Me”

The Frazier Museum is pleased to partner with IDEASxLab, Roots 101, and Louisville Metro Government on the (Un)Known Project.
Join us as we share stories — of Black men, women, and children, both known and unknown, who were formerly enslaved in Louisville, Kentucky — in conversation with key partners and artists working on the project.

This discussion will take place the same week as the public art unveiling and site dedication Louisville Metro is organizing as part of the city’s Juneteenth commemoration on Saturday, June 19.

Learn our city’s history, including the vital role the Ohio River played on the journey to freedom.

Spoken Word Artist Hannah Drake will perform her original work “Finding Me.” You’ll also meet the artists behind the Limestone Reconciliation Benches, which are meant to teach and inspire.
