Lincoln Institute provided education, life experience for Black students in Kentucky
Today, the Whitney M. Young, Jr. Job Corps Training Center helps teach young people the skills they need to succeed through career and academic training.
Years before, that area was the campus of the Lincoln Institute, a place that helped shape the lives of hundreds of students, and set a standard of education for young African Americans.
The Lincoln Institute started with just 85 students but soon grew by the hundreds, becoming known as one of the premier schools for African Americans in Kentucky.
