Behind the Blue

Some stories require a little more – a little more discussion, more context, more depth and breadth. That’s the idea behind “Behind the Blue” – a weekly podcast created by UK Public Relations and Marketing. It is designed to explore through probing interviews the in-depth the stories that make UK the university for Kentucky and that have impact across the institution, the Commonwealth and, in some cases, the world.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Mar. 4, 2019) - In the late 1960s, P.G. Peeples made his way to the University of Kentucky from the coal town of Lynch in Eastern Kentucky.

He thought he would be a teacher – studies he focused intently on.

But five decades later, Peeples has been marking some 50 years as President/CEO of the Urban League of Lexington. There, he is known as a national leader in urban redevelopment, training and housing efforts.  

In this edition of Behind the Blue, you can listen to how UK helped prepare him not only to be a teacher, but a community leader across generations in Lexington and beyond. It’s a path he didn’t know he would take at the time, but one that has changed the trajectory of Lexington.
