Cincinnati’s Renaissance and the Return of the NAACP Convention

Cincinnati is a diverse city, and the percentage of racial minorities in the total population is on the rise. African Americans alone comprise more than 40% of the city’s estimated 297,000 residents. As the city redevelops, it, like other American cities, finds itself continuing to face issues of disparity, and one program takes a unique approach to addressing the problem. In the same way that the city’s neighborhoods are transforming into booming communities, organizers of MORTAR, a minority-led business incubator, believe that the neighborhood’s residents have the potential to be part of the change, rather than displacement.
