Black-led and artist-driven "Our Tables" is a community gathering that will take place on Juneteenth on Over-the-Rhine's Main Street. 

Cincy Nice partnered with a "coalition of Black leaders" to host the free event, which invites the neighborhood to come together while they "symbolically take down boarded up window art and turn those walls of separation into two city-blocks of open table conversations."

Our Tables will take place 7-8:30 p.m. on Friday, June 19. The event page asks that attendees arrive on time as the program will begin promptly at 7 p.m., and wear whatever makes them feel their best. 

The event takes place on Juneteenth, the day formerly enslaved people in Texas were informed the South had lost the Civil War and that they were free.

"'Our Tables' is just the beginning. A night that will continue to be built upon as we collectively create our future city," the event page reads.
