Celebrating Black History Month
Fri February 1, 2013
Cincinnati's Harriet Beecher Stowe House
You hear Chris DeSimio each Saturday morning hosting On the Money, but did you know besides being a successful investment counselor, Chris is also the president of the Friends of Harriet Beecher Stowe House? As we begin Black History Month, Mark Perzel turns the tables and interviews Chris about the importance of Harriet Beecher Stowe to the Underground Railroad, and provides information about her family and their home at Gilbert Avenue and Martin Luther King Blvc. that is now meticulously maintained inside by the Friends group, and the Cincinnati Park Board on the outside.
On February 24, the Friends of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House will hold the 2nd Annual Jazz and Poetry Cafe as part of Black History Month, and as a way to celebrate the life and career of Dr. Frank Foster, a Cincinnatian who served as musical director for the Count Basie Orchestra.
