Brown Bag History Program:  Historic Black Settlements of Ohio

Brown Bag History Program: Historic Black Settlements of Ohio

In the years leading up to the Civil War, Ohio had more African American settlements than any other state. Despite these communities having populations that sometimes numbered in the hundreds, little is known about most of them, and by the beginning of the twentieth century, nearly all had lost their ethnic identities as the original settlers died off and their descendants moved away. Save for scattered cemeteries and an occasional building, they have all but been erased.
