Stephanie, You've been covering these protests for months now, how have they evolved? Well, you know, Briana Taylor's shooting death in her own apartment has really impacted many people in Louisville and around the country. We always like to think that if nowhere else you're safe at home So yesterday actually marked the 119th consecutive day of protest in Louisville. They've been out every day since late May, demanding justice for Taylor 119 days and I suppose you get the impression that this will continue. Yeah. I repeatedly heard from protesters that yesterday's announcement will not end these demonstrations. Here's Nicole Williams, who often organizes local protest, She says she'll be out today and the next day. However many days I will be here. No justice, no peace, and there's still no justice and then so there is justice. There will be no peace period. So last week, this city settled a wrongful death lawsuit by Taylor's family and as part of that the city committed to implementing a list of law enforcement reforms like a tracking system to flag officers who use excessive force. So what? Protesters and residents are waiting for us How much substance change is put in place. Stephanie Wolf in Louisville, Kentucky. Thanks, Stephanie. Thanks..

Activists demanding justice for Breonna Taylor protested on Kentucky Derby Day

"The first Saturday in May. But this is Kentucky Derby Day after the postponing of the race is just one reason the 146 Derby is one for the history books As W. F B L Stephanie Wolf explains. Security often referred to as the two most exciting minutes in sports. The Kentucky Derby is also a marquee social event days. A fanfare Parties parade, a massive firework show. Ah, a lot of that is gone this year due to the global pandemic and even more notable None of 155,000 plus fans in the grandstands a revision Churchill Downs, the home of the Derby made recently. That's not all That's different this year. Louisville just marked 100 consecutive days of protest against racism and police violence and demonstrators plan to make Derby 101 days. Several groups held a press conference near Churchill Downs Friday. This's Ehren Jordan of No justice, No peace Louisville. We have several black organisations behind us, and we have full intent to black out their happened demands to cancel dirty something that's never been done before. Haven Harrington is CEO and host of main event sports radio. He's covered the Derby for years. He thinks it should be run. It's the city's signature event. But while the horse racing industry doesn't often weigh in on social justice issues, Harrington says, Now is not the time for silence in this town, you know, which is still waiting on bated breath for what's gonna happen with You know Briana Taylor and the officers involved can't just be big hats in pretty dresses. You have to say and do something to acknowledge the situation. Churchill Downs did issue a statement Thursday afternoon, acknowledging how black jockeys once dominated the race, but were then excluded and acknowledging the pain community members feel right now as they wait for the state attorney general and FBI to conclude their investigation into the police, killing a Briana Taylor. It's important to carry on, says Churchill Down CEO Bill Car Stange in here he is talking on CNBC support for hewing important are our traditions and culture in our community. Tell me how this will unify the community. The running of course, poet activist Hannah Drake lives near Churchill Downs. She's had a simmering frustration with the Derby for years. Even more. So, she says, as she faces arrest for obstructing the highway by protesting in the streets. But I for Darby, too inconvenient me and block off street, not let me pass that fine. Drake, who is black, recently wrote a letter to the CEO asking for some self reflection of the institutions, lack of black representation and a lack of in her opinion, compassion. This is the institution that can redeem itself and they need to start by asking himself. How can we be better neighbors? So this Adjacent community and to the very one way she thinks they could do better is by dumping a tradition, she says, is rooted in racism.

"To all things considered from NPR news. As monuments come down around the country, a group in Louisville, Kentucky, is working on putting one up. It's a memorial dedicated to black people whose names have been lost to history. WFP eels Stephanie Wolf reports. Poet and author Hannah Drake stands near the banks of the Ohio River, looking from Kentucky across the southern Indiana Drake, who is black, thinks about the enslaved people who stood here more than a century ago. You wonder what they do when they weren't Working tobacco fields or him filled when they wanted to escape to Indiana. What were they dreaming about? Kentucky claimed to neutrality during the civil war, but it was a slave state and on the other side of the river was essentially freedom. And it's just right there. You see it, and if you just get across, then hopefully your entire life to be different. Nearby is a stretch of grass shaded by trees, the future site of the public art piece, a monument to black people who were enslaved. It's part of something called the Unknown Project from Louisville Artist Run nonprofit Ideas ex lab where Drake works. The memorial will start as a path of carved our caste footprints that will lead people from nearby history museums to the river, where there will be limestone benches and then more footprints leading to the river's edge. We wanted people to come here and sit And just acknowledge something, and if you sit on the bench for five minutes or you sit on the bench for five hours, I think seeing it will stir up something that's my whole. Drake says The project has many influences, including a visit to the National Lynching Memorial in Alabama. A site includes more than 806 foot tall hanging beans inscribed with names of lynching victims. But on these pillars, they also stamped the word unknown. So there are people that were lynched that they just don't know The names of it just broke my heart. Like, how could someone be here and be on? Somebody knew them? She also visited former plantations in Kentucky and Mississippi family is always the same story. We don't have their names or their names were written down as a name. They were property, so they're written down as a thing. So this is Not Hanna. This is the unknown project is for all of them. This was our way to say. We acknowledged that you were here you existed and we recognize that It's also for enslaved people whose names might be known, but their stories aren't like Lucy and Thornton Blackburn. They escaped from Kentucky by way of the Ohio River and went on to build a successful taxicab business in Canada. Rachel Platt is with Louisville Sprays. You're History Museum, one of several partners on the unknown project. She says she only recently learned about the black burns. How do we not know their story? What other stories are out there? And what are we missing as part of our history that we don't know about? It was Platt, who reached out to Hannah Drake and ideas ex lab about the Black Burns. Drake said she'd never heard about them before and in reading more about them. She came across the following phrase. Anything else about them is virtually unknown. There was that word again unknown, Drake says. Everything kind of clicked together, then. The project has been in the works for more than a year. But there's added residence at this moment because of Briana Taylor's death in Louisville. I feel with Rianna Taylor and the whole say her name campaign is the very same thing. That you have a young woman whose name would have surely been forgotten from history unless people started speaking her name over and over and over again. The plan is to install the benches in the footprints of the unknown project along the Ohio River next year for NPR News.
