Along the picturesque southern banks of the Ohio River, the African-American communities of Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties have provided laborers and entrepreneurs to aid in the economic growth of the region from the earliest settlements to today. Despite numerous obstacles and against seemingly insurmountable odds, African Americans in Northern Kentucky made significant contributions in many fields, ranging from music, medicine, and literature to performing arts, poetry, education, and athletics.
