Product Description

This collection of This I Believe essays gathers 60 thoughtful explorations of the core values and guiding principles of authors from Kentucky or writing about Kentucky. Contributors include:

•  former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali,
•  Spalding University President Tori Murden McClure,
•  Kentucky Poet Laureate Frank X Walker,
•  Silas House,
•  Sena Jeter Naslund, and
•  ordinary Kentuckians from every corner of the Commonwealth

The book also features a dozen essays from Edward R. Murrow’s original 1950s This I Believe radio series, including:

•  newspaper publisher Barry Bingham Sr.,
•  journalist and NAACP executive Harry McAlpin,
•  U of L professor Charles Parrish, and
•  Edmund Schlesinger

With a foreword from public radio host and Kentuckian Bob Edwards and an introduction from former Courier-Journal Editorial Page Editor Keith Runyon, this book is filled with inspiring and thought-provoking essays that compel us to rethink not only how we have arrived at our own beliefs, but also the extent to which we share them with others.
