Experience Bourbon City’s Black Heritage

See experiences and attractions honoring the impact and influence of Black culture on Louisville.

Louisville would not be the creative, innovative, passionate city that it is without its Black community. For so many things that make Louisville unique- from Bourbon, to horse racing, to food traditions and even the Greatness himself, Muhammad Ali- countless people of color have contributed their gifts to build the city’s vibrant culture. The past can be complex and sometimes hard to imagine through a modern lens. We all benefit from learning a destination’s complete history. We welcome you to discover Bourbon City’s Black Heritage.
