Three Acts in Over-the-Rhine

Established in July by the burgeoning Over-the-Rhine Museum, this lecture series brings in local historians, advocates and OTR residents to discuss topics pertaining to the neighborhood’s history. The Peaslee Neighborhood Center hosts the third installment, featuring the center’s Jennifer Summers and Larry Fogle and associate professors of history Christine Anderson and Eric Jackson of Xavier and Northern Kentucky University, respectively. Summers and Fogle will divulge the value of oral history and share experiences they’ve had at Peaslee; Anderson will discuss Sisters Justina and Blandina Segale, who worked with Italian immigrants in OTR during the early 20th century; and Jackson will focus on African-American migration to the neighborhood between 1900 and the 1980s.
