Cynthia Atkins (Project Director: February 2009 to present)

The purpose of this grant proposal is to provide funding for the Lincoln traveling exhibition. This exhibition will add to the cultural outreach of the college and will provide outreach opportunities to all constituencies, especially youth in the community who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience this type exhibition. Hopkinsville is located in an area rich in Civil War history. This exhibition will help provide context to those who experience it. Hopkinsville is statistically the most diverse city in Kentucky with a population that includes over 33% African Americans. It is also strategically located near Fort Campbell, KY. This exhibition will attract significant participation from groups in the area.
