Johnathan Lee Iverson is a historic name you may not recognize. He is the first African-American ringmaster for the world famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and he’s coming to Cincinnati with the circus’ newest production, Dragon. Frank Johnson has the ringmaster on the phone for a preview of the circus, which opens March 13 at US Bank Arena.
