African Americans in Cincinnati
Dr. Eric R. Jackson, Carmel Presbyterian Church
The Carmel Presbyterian Church has a long history of community engagement. These activities intensified when the church moved from its original location in downtown Cincinnati to North Avondale during the late 1950s. Today the church continues to work with the local, predominantly African American community in a number of ways, including working with sixteen different social agencies as a part of the "Every Child Succeeds" program which offers support to first-time, at-risk mothers.
