A Louisville Story Program publication, this book is a compilation of photographs taken by Bud Dorsey, West Louisville's most iconic living photographer. Dorsey has dedicated over 50 years to documenting life in Louisville, especially the experiences of African Americans. Hardcover. 187 pages.


The Louisville Story Program strengthens the bonds of community by amplifying unheard voices and untold stories. Through rigorous writing and oral history workshops, and with professional editorial support, participating LSP authors from historically underrepresented communities document the richness of lived experience in Louisville communities from the inside out, and in their own words.
