Cincinnati History is Black History
We are so excited to kick off our Lost Voices of Cincinnati series which explores the rich African American history of Cincinnati. You can think of this episode as a kind of prelude of sorts. We go back, way back, to Cincinnati’s beginnings, and tell stories you’ve probably never heard — like how a Cincinnati barber helped execute the biggest North American escape of enslaved people, ever; how and why a mob attacked Cincinnati’s African American community (with cannons, no less) in 1841; and how the West End became one of the most happening Black communities of the 1920s. We show how, throughout the city’s history, African American communities have always faced adversity — but have also always banded together to not only persevere, but thrive. Part I: The tale of the escape of the 28 [0:00-08:23]  Part II: Early Cincinnati history with Professor Eric Jackson [08:24-17:48]  Part III: A sneak peek of what’s to come  [17:49-22:37] Urban Roots is a podcast that takes a deep dive into little known stories from Urban history. We’re hosted by historic preservationist Deqah Hussein-Wetzel and journalist Vanessa Quirk. We’re edited by Connor Lynch and mixed by Tim Soarce. Our theme music is by Adaam James Levin-Areddy. Our logo is by Deqah H.W., Shanon Shipley, and Gwyneth Lynn Ravenscraft. Our Lost Voices of Cincinnati series was made possible by a Truth & Reconciliation grant from ArtsWave and our Fundly patrons (Donations always needed/welcomed!). We’d also like to thank Invest in Neighborhoods for their support.
