The Lincoln School Story at the Ohio Statehouse
February 6 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
The Ohio Statehouse celebrates Black History Month in 2024 with public events on Tuesdays. On February 6, at noon in the Statehouse Atrium, Melvin Barnes with Ohio Humanities will show the new documentary, The Lincoln School Story. The documentary follows a group of mothers and their children, The Lincoln School Marchers, in Southwest Ohio. They heroically fought for school desegregation for over two years to continue the fight for equality in one of the longest-sustained actions of the Civil Rights movement. This event is free and open to the public.
The performances are planned to be livestreamed on OhioChannel.org.
The 45-minute live performances start at noon, and will be followed by 15 minutes for Q & A.
