LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A trail that marks the locations of historical civil rights demonstrations in downtown Louisville is set to be dedicated.

WAVE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1QsVH8N) a dedication ceremony for the Civil Rights Overview trail will be held on Monday. The trail consists of 11 markers that recount marches and sit-ins that protested segregation at city businesses. It also marks the voter registration campaign that set a precedent for southern cities.

Louisville-area schools will have resource guides to help teachers incorporate the trail into their lessons. The guides can be found online at the University of Louisville’s website and at the Louisville Visitors Center.

Former dean of the University of Louisville College of Arts and Science J. Blaine Hudson first created the project.
