Abstract:

"Across the Color Line: Reporting 25 Years in Black Cincinnati pulls together newspaper reporter Mark Curnutte's stories published in The Cincinnati Enquirer over a 25-year period starting in 1993. With hard-won insights learned from years of in-the-community reporting, Curnutte describes the African American experience through personality and neighborhood profiles, the community institutions, historical perspectives and issue stories. The anthology tells a sweeping narrative of a city suffering and maturing through turn-of-the-century racial growing pains, increased racial sophistication and diversity, and Curnutte's personal journey as a white man and reporting making the intentional decision to work and live across the color line"--
