Each set of documents represents a different group or individual, each with varying levels of power. The Board of Trustees had the most power at the university, but of course, they were still subject to the authority of the Federal Court. These minutes from the Board of Trustees meeting take place after the court’s decision, which ruled that UK must provide access to their facilities to African American students if separate, comparable facilities did not exist. The minutes show how the individuals in charge at UK approached integration and the court case. In addition, the minutes indicate the board’s thought process, both in making decisions to respond to the court case and in what they thought of their own conduct.
