Feb 15, 2018

The Urban League of Lexington-Fayette County is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and as part of our observance of Black History Month WUKY's Alan Lytle recently sat down with PG Peeples, the long-time executive director of the non-profit.  In this 30 minute conversation PG talks about the early days of the agency, including coordinating with President Nixon's Secret Service for the 1971 memorial service of National Chapter President Whitney Young.  He also discusses some of the major accomplishments of the organization over its first half century.
