As neighborhoods across Cincinnati and urban areas around the country see change and heightened interest, and as the nation continues a conversation about racial equity, a local group is hosting a conversation about what it means for Black residents to have ownership over those places.

Urban Consulate Cincinnati will host community advocates from the Queen City and Detroit to talk about the idea of Black places and Black ownership on July 12 at 7 p.m. in Walnut Hills. The conversation will feature a panel of six guests from those cities who will weigh in on "the future of Black ownership, narrative and imagination." 

Joining Cincinnati Edition to preview that discussion are Urban Consulate Co-Host Naimah Bilal; Bridge Detroit Engagement Director and Urban Consulate Detroit Host Orlando P. Bailey; and Walnut Hills-based community advocate Kathryne Gardette

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
