Meet Another Hidden Figure - Elmer Lucille Allen

Learn about Louisville's very own hidden figure, the multi-talented Elmer Lucille Allen. From scientist to renowned artist, Elmer Lucille has forged a path reflecting her unique background. In 1966, she became the first African American chemist at the Brown-Forman Company, rising to senior analytical chemist before retiring in 1997. At the age of 71, she began a second career in art, creating vibrant cotton and silk shibori wall hangings with detailed, geometric patterns that reflect her scientific background. Light refreshments will be served. Registration is required.
