LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 16, 2011) – If you understand Kentucky history, you understand American history, according to former University of Kentucky history Professor Daniel Blake Smith.

“If the nation is a body, then Kentucky is the heart,” Smith said, quoting Kentucky poet Jesse Stuart. “Through issues such as industrialization and land use, the country can learn a lot from Kentucky’s past.”

Narrated by film star Ashley Judd, directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Paul Wagner and written and produced by Smith, “Kentucky—An American Story” is a provocative and entertaining documentary about the revealing connections between Kentucky’s and America’s past. The film premieres at 8 p.m. EDT Tuesday, May 24, on Kentucky Educational Television.
