The Freedom Center is also reopening its Open Your Mind: Understanding Implicit Bias Learning Lab. The Learning Lab is a safe space for guests to learn about the blind spots that can compromise our professional and personal decisions. The Learning Lab encourages bold, perhaps uncomfortable, self-reflection and open dialogue about what we can do both as individuals and a society to make our world a more equitable place for all.
Guests can also enjoy the stunning view from the eternal flame terrace on the third floor. The terrace overlooks the Ohio River, nicknamed the River Jordan by those fleeing enslavement. The river represents the final obstacle in their journey of self-emancipation and continues to hold symbolic value today. The Freedom Center’s location on the banks of the Ohio River is a deliberate reminder of the river’s and Cincinnati’s place on the path to freedom in the era of the Underground Railroad.
All films and the Open Your Mind: Understanding Implicit Bias Learning Lab are included with admission. The Freedom Center is open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Timed tickets are required for entry to manage capacity and allow for proper social distancing. Visit freedomcenter.org to reserve tickets or for more information.
