America’s Truth: Cincinnati explores how structural racism produced inequitable outcomes in four Black neighborhoods in Cincinnati – Avondale, West End, Lincoln Heights and Kennedy Heights. The stories of these communities recount a long history of unjust policies intentionally designed to drive inequitable outcomes by race and place. Pairing the science of public health with riveting storytelling, the documentary covers nearly 200 years of housing, education and public safety policy that continue to produce adversity for Black Cincinnatians today.
