About

Mission

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.

Vision

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.
