Isaac Murphy. Ansel Williamson. Jim Winkfield. These were among the greatest horsemen of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries as the Kentucky Derby was becoming one of the most prominent sporting events in America. These horsemen were proud of their calling - and they were Black. Join us for a one hour, immersive, theatre-style production as we use costumed actors, historic photos and audience participation to guide us through over a century of Black horsemanship. You will leave knowing the Kentucky Derby Heritage is also Black Heritage.
