A film showing how structural racism in Cincinnati has intentionally produced racial inequities in heath, wealth, and wellbeing.

October 18, 7:00 – 9:00 PM

St. Timothy Episcopal Church

8101 Beechmont Avenue, 45255

America’s Truth: Cincinnati uses the science of public health and riveting storytelling, to show how structural racism has intentionally produced racial inequities in health, wealth, and wellbeing. Spanning nearly 200 years of housing, education, and public safety policy, the film traces how these decisions continue to produce adversity for Black Cincinnatians today.

The documentary, produced by the Center for Community Resilience at the Millikin School of Public Health at George Washington University, demonstrates the need in our country to correct narratives that place blame on communities of color for the outcomes of racialized inequity rather than on the systems and policies created to produce inequity.

The film is informed by the historical record from official city documents, museum archives and primary data from across multiple sectors including housing, education, criminal justice, and public health. Most importantly, the narrative of the community is drawn from the voices of residents who lived through the trauma or have made it their life’s work to ensure the trauma endured by ancestors be told.

Rooted in understanding the past to inform a more equitable and just future, the film presents Truth – both historical fact and lived experience. As a tool for change, the film suggests a roadmap of policy opportunities that can help to foster racial healing and spur efforts aimed at long-term systems change.
