U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris visited Downtown's BlaCk Coffee Lounge Friday afternoon during her trip to Cincinnati.
Harris was at the shop with Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley and ordered a house "Wakanda" coffee. Wakanda is the fictional African country in Black Panther and other Marvel Comics/Marvel Entertainment properties.
Harris’ visit reportedly revolved around public transit as an economic driver. Details of the itinerary are scarce, but Sen. Sherrod Brown, of Cleveland, was slated to moderate a discussion with Cincinnati Metro, the Enquirer reports.
BlaCk Coffee Lounge opened in the summer of 2019 and strives to be a place where people of all communities can congregate to celebrate Black culture while enjoying great coffee.
