The Chronicle of African Americans in the Horse Industry seeks to:
- document and archive the history of African Americans in the horse industry,
- expand knowledge of the people, places, and events, and
- interpret these experiences as included in the fabric of American history.
The Chronicle of African Americans in the Horse Industry achieves its mission through:
- collaborating with communities to preserve history,
- hosting an accessible, interactive website,
- building a trusted resource for students, teachers, historians, scholars, visitors, and descendants, and
- deepening understanding of this rich history.
The website project grew out of a need to expand the exhibit, Black Horsemen of the Kentucky Turf. Learn more about the project's beginnings by reading this blog post by the museum's founder Bill Cooke.
