"It is time for blacks to begin the shift from a wartime to a peacetime identity, from fighting for opportunity to the seizing of it." - Shelby Steele

During the 1840's, a man named Levi Coffin helped thousands of African Americans to reach freedom by crossing the border of Canada. The city of Cincinnati had about 3000 miles of routes for the famous underground railroad system. In 1841, there was a state law passed in Ohio that outlawed any forced servitude within its border. But before that year, the city of Cincinnati was a harbor for the continuation of forced labor. According to the Library of Medicine there are now immigrants migrating to Cincinnati from Senegal, and Mauritania. On August 3, 2004, the $110 million Underground Railroad Museum had its grand opening. The funds for the freedom center project were federally, and private sector sources. Its mission is to promote freedom around the globe, and to educate the masses on the principles of a free mind. As of 2022, companies are now willing to hire felons. According to the Innocence Project there were 33 prisoners exonerated so far in Ohio, and many more are on the way. There are 42.25% African Americans that reside in the city of Cincinnati, says World Population Review. So Cincinnati!

"The people, the people, are the rightful masters of both congresses, and courts; not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it."
-September 16 & 17, 1859 speech at Columbus, and Cincinnati by Abraham
