Historian Lee To Deliver Clark Lecture

Historian Jacob Lee will deliver a presentation on George Rogers Clark’s relationship with Native Americans this week at the Kentucky Historical Society. It’s part of the “History Speaks” series sponsored by the Society. Coordinator Erica Harvey says that Lee’s lecture will challenge the notion that Clark, a Louisville founding father, wanted Native Americans to be eradicated from the continent.“Lee is taking the stand that Clark’s views were a little more complex than just being someone who loathed Native Americans,” she said.The “History Speaks!” series allows audience members to ask questions and take part in lectures rather than just listening. Lee’s presentation is Thursday evening in Frankfort.(Story by Simon Levine)
