Dr. Marian Spencer

Marian Spencer, a celebrated civil rights activist, a 1942 graduate of the University of Cincinnati, was the first African American female elected to the Cincinnati City Council and the first female president of the Cincinnati chapter of the NAACP. She led the fight to desegregate public schools and integrate Coney Island – she won both battles.

In recognition of the longstanding contributions by Marian Spencer, the Division of Equity, Inclusion & Community Impact sponsors the Marian Spencer Equity Ambassador Award. This award is designed to showcase current campus-affiliated individuals and groups whose efforts related to diversity, equity, and inclusion have positively impacted the university.
