Posted on December 15th, 2015 by

Carridder Jones, author of Voices: From Historical African American Communities near Louisville, Kentucky, recently sat down with Nancy Stearns Theiss of the Courier-Journal to talk about a segment from her book. Carridder, who graduated from the Chaney Grove Rosenwald school, chose to speak about the James Taylor Subdivision.

She tells all about James Taylor’s efforts to create a residence where African Americans could own land and live in modest country homes. He even bought a bus to drive graduates of the Jacob School (the town’s Rosenwald school), to Central High School.
