Truth Be Told: The Policies that Impacted Black People

recurring event

As the call for racial justice and equality in America is louder now than ever before, the Muhammad Ali Center has created an exhibition to educate and help others learn from the country’s past in order to foster a better future. Truth Be Told: The Policies that Impacted Black Lives is an exploration of those policies that are linked to systematic racism in America, from the early 1600s, up to present day. Truth Be Told offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the history of Black people in our country that is often left out of, misinterpreted, or even falsified in our history books. It is critical that the facts of our collective American history be told, so that the negative outcomes that these policies produced can be understood, recognized, and amended.

The exhibition’s content is posted on authentic plywood panels that were used on buildings in the Louisville protests and marches. These panels, originally used as barriers, have been repurposed as the platform on which we are sharing this important history. Truth Be Told also features a spray painted mural created by Louisville artist Braylyn Resko Stewart.

We hope when visiting Truth Be Told that you will takeaway these three things: Learn, Share, and Vote. LEARN the true history of the policies that have affected Black people; Be encouraged to SHARE what they have learned with anyone who will listen, and VOTE for the people on the ballot who will make the right decisions for all people in this country.

This exhibition is sponsored by NASCAR and Block by Block.
