What is a Kentuckian?
May 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Kentucky Humanities Council presents James Larry Hood who will be speaking on just what makes a resident of Kentucky a true Kentuckian. This presentation is sponsored by the Anderson Community Education center.
This is a humorous and informative look at the enduring images Kentuckians and others have of the state and its people – from that of barefoot, warring hillbillies to southern aristocrats.
The presentation will touch on Kentucky’s core values of family and home, individualism and community, basketball and horse racing, snake handlers and mega churches, tobacco and whiskey and wine, yellow dog Democrats and dastardly Republicans.
Kentucky will be presented as the nation’s true borderland and heart.
