Frankfort's "Craw" Oral History Project

Between 1955 and 1972 Frankfort's "Bottom" or "Craw" community, an integrated working-class neighborhood, was systematically destroyed by the urban renewal. Former residents describe their experiences with urban renewal and the institutions, people, and events that defined their neighborhood and daily lives. Topics discussed include, urban renewal, local businesses, residential housing conditions, racial inequity, the history of sex work in the area, gambling, bootlegging, civil rights activities, African American education, and civic and community leaders.
