Charles Neblett  

Original Civil Rights Movement Freedom Singer – Civil and Human Rights Activist.

WKU Folk Studies graduate student Rachel Hopkin produced a wonderful radio program for WKYU Public Radio in Bowling Green about Charles Neblett, founding member of the Freedom Singers. The radio program features Neblett discussing the death of fourteen-year old Emmitt Till, which led him to fight in the Civil Rights Movement as well as stories of how and why he still fights today. The program also touches on Neblett’s work in the Black Bottom Historic Neighborhood in Russellville, Kentucky and the the importance of working with young people in the community.
