Making Black History

“Seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history." - President Ford, first Black History Month commemoration

Black History Month encourages all to reflect on our nation’s history. It’s also a time to innovate new ways how we as citizens, community leaders and businesses can take more action to advance inclusivity. Your Cincinnati Chamber is inspired by Cincinnati’s black leadership – and throughout February, we will be a bold voice to recognize seven black leaders, living and working in our region, making black history TODAY. 

These honorees are executives, creatives, entrepreneurs, public officials, and community advocates. Each redefines the standard in his or her career, creating a path for all who follow. 

Each week, we will share lessons from their journeys, culminating in a special tribute at the Cincinnati Chamber Annual Dinner, the region’s premier business event.

Please take the time to get to know these leaders – use your voice and together let’s celebrate and elevate them.
