University of Kentucky professor Gerald L. Smith was guest speaker Saturday night at the NAACP Freedom Fund banquet at the Shelbyville Country Club. About 60 people attended and heard  Smith speak  on the topic "We Can't Turn Back Now."


Smith noted  some of the reasons throughout  history that African-Americans could look back and see how far they've progressed and challenged those in attendance to keep pressing forward and working to make the nation a better place for everyone.
