The State of Black Louisville report is a highly-anticipated publication–a collection of essays from engaged stakeholders around the city–showing how African Americans in Louisville are doing – in jobs, justice, education, health, and housing. It offers benchmarks and sources for thought leadership around both the improvements and disparities that African Americans face in these areas.

The report is packed with data, reflective commentary, and insightful analysis from leading figures and field experts of the Louisville community. The report also includes recommendations and solutions-oriented action items.

The State of Black Louisville is a roadmap to address longstanding inequities and, more importantly, to pave the way for greater progress.
