Cincinnati Businesses Are Using Their Boarded-Up Storefronts to Share Messages of Support

Many Cincinnati businesses throughout Over-the-Rhine have begun boarding up their storefronts after protests over the death of George Floyd by a police officer in Minneapolis turned destructive last Friday. While virtually no reports of damage have occurred since then, businesses are using their storefronts as a means to voice their support for the movement, their community and black lives across the country.
