Blackwell spoke of his personal history, growing up in Cincinnati, succeeding academically and athletically at Xavier, and gaining election to a series of municipal and state offices.
Following his presentation, those in attendance shared their personal histories with people at their tables, with discussion guided by a trained facilitator. The goal is to promote civil and respectful dialogue among the races by gaining a better understanding of each others’ personal histories.
This event is co-sponsored by Xavier University, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Procter & Gamble and the Greater Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce.
