Hoptown’s own Ted Talk @ Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library - Community Room
Mar 12 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

The Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County, the Hopkinsville-County Public Library, and the Kentucky New Era invite you to Hoptown’s Own Ted Talk on March 12, 2015 at 5:30pm in the Community Room at the Public Library. The talk will focus on the life and work of Hopkinsville native Ted Poston.

After graduating from Attucks High School in 1924, Ted Poston walked and hitchhiked to Nashville and enrolled at the Tennessee Agriculture and Industrial College. Graduating four years later, he headed north and eventually landed a reporting job with the New York Post. He became the first African-American journalist to build a career at a white mainstream newspaper. This Hopkinsville native remains one of the most celebrated journalists of the 20th century.

Come hear more about his amazing story – and the stories he shared with a national audience – during Hoptown’s Own Ted Talk for Black History Month.

Jennifer P. Brown, opinion editor for the Kentucky New Era and a member of the Kentucky Historical Society’s Executive Committee, will share stories about Ted Poston’s life and about Kathleen Hauke, the biographer who explored Poston’s Hopkinsville roots for the three books she published about this extraordinary man.

The program is free to the public. Light refreshments will be served, and a drawing will be held for two free copies of The Dark Side of Hopkinsville, Poston’s collection of short stories.

For more information, contact the Museum at (270) 887-4270 or the Library at (270) 887-4263.
