About the series:

Race and Racism in Cincinnati, a 3-part docuseries, is the telling of Cincinnati’s history from the racial margins, a history that is not often told in school curriculums or in mainstream (white) culture.

This video series shares a people’s history that places storytelling authority in the hands of common people, rather than political leaders or other figures of power who have crafted narratives to benefit their agenda.

This series features three separate hour-long videos that each tackle a different time span, starting from Cincinnati’s birth and bringing us to the present day. Each viewing will be followed by a discussion session.
The series was created by Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center (IJPC) in 2021 and is being viewed all across Cincinnati. Believing that in order to dismantle systemic racism it is essential to understand our past, IJPC staff and volunteers offer this series to help us better understand how Cincinnati’s past has shaped its “present,” and the work required to build a more equitable future.
GAPP’s executive director Louise Lawarre was instrumental in the development of this series and serves as the narrator for the first film.


Registration is required. Participants are asked to attend the full series.
