- "Community and memory are two concepts that together evoke emotions long felt but seldom expressed. This work explores two aspects of memory - that captured by photographic images freezing a particular moment in time and that captured through oral history interviews. Based on thirty-six interviews and containing two hundred photographs from fifty-two personal collections, Community Memories brings together the life stories, remembrances, and experiences that have coalesced into the shared memory of the African American community in Frankfort, Kentucky's capital."
- "To be sure, these photos and oral history excerpts offer only a brief glimpse into the everyday life of the African American community. There are undoubtedly aspects of that community that are not included at all; however, five main themes emerged in both the interviews and the images and became the subjects of distinct chapters within the book - the elusive concept of community is the overarching theme; the importance of family, and the significance of employment, religion, and education are the threads that combine to form the sense of community, togetherness, and belonging. Within these often-intertwined webs of social interaction, reside the stories, celebrations, songs, meeting places, and lore of Black residents in the Frankfort area."
- "While this is a glimpse of Frankfort's African American community, it has much in common with other Black communities, especially those in the South. Although much in the collection that produced this work - both photographic and oral history - is nostalgic, it ultimately demonstrates that change is constant, producing both negative and positive results."--Jacket
