Our organization has partnered with the Walnut Hills Historical Society, Frederick Douglass Elementary, and artist Janet Creekmore to complete a couple different wheatpasting projects on the one-story, blue buildings on Lincoln Ave by Gilbert.

Please contact us if you would like to get involved, or have a story of your own about the historic Black Business District!
