POSTPONED – Race and Racism in Cincinnati Bus Tour
April 5, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
**Postponed due to public health concerns. More information to come.**
Our 2 hour tour will travel throughout Cincinnati, stopping at 6 sites of racial significance. Volunteer tour guides will provide participants with relevant knowledge and themes for further reflection.
The perspective of the tour derives from a legacy of people’s history, or “history from below”. This type of history places storytelling authority in the hands of common people rather than political leaders or other mainstream narrative leaders who have typically crafted a singular, common narrative to benefit their agenda.
Given that the collaborators on this project are not trained historians but interested citizens, the information we’ll share is our attempt to bring more visibility to history that is usually unseen both in our city’s landscape and in our textbooks.
– The tour will begin and end at Peaslee Neighborhood Center. Limited parking is available in the Peaslee lot and street parking is available on Sycamore.
– Please arrive for your tour 30 minutes prior to the event start. We will leave promptly at the time listed (9:30 am on March 28, 2 pm on April 5).
– Following the tour, there will be an optional but recommended opportunity to join us for a tour debrief in the Peaslee lobby. The debrief will last approximately an hour, but feel free to stay for as much as you’d like.
– Please bring a reusable water bottle, if you’d like (water will not be provided).
***Private Tours: we’re working hard to offer tours for private groups – church groups, book clubs, schools, etc. in Fall 2020. If you’re interested in this option, please email Jessie@IJPCcincinnati.org.
