The Kentucky Divide grew out of a desire to explore a range of issues related to our state’s income and wealth divides. Initiated in the Advanced Reporting class at Western Kentucky University, the project developed into a collaborative endeavor within the School of Journalism & Broadcasting during the Spring 2015 semester. Student reporters and editors partnered with students in the school’s Data Visualization and Interactive Media courses and student photojournalists. In doing so, we hoped to present an in-depth exposition of the issue in Kentucky while paying tribute to the state’s collective struggles, triumphs and evolution.
