Cincinnati.com: Cincinnati's Black population is decreasing
UC expert in urban history comments on change in city’s demographics
According to Enquirer reporting, there are fewer Black residents in Cincinnati than there were in 1980. This decrease could have social and political impacts in the area; to include less attention and funds for underserved populations.
Many Black families are moving to the suburbs for the same reasons white populations have in the past, such as safety and better schools, says David Stradling, professor of urban history in UC’s College of Arts and Sciences.
“I think that African Americans moving into the suburbs, and enjoying the benefits that whites have always sought out in the suburbs, particularly living in neighborhoods that they feel safe in, and that they feel comfortable with sending their kids to school, is a good thing.”
UC professors Brian Calfano and Jeffrey Timberlake are also quoted in the article.

UC’s Institute for Research in Sensing (IRiS) hosts its first annual Expo & Festival of Sensing next month to convene an interdisciplinary conference exploring the topic of sensing in all its forms, from the sciences to the humanities. The event will be held on May 25 and 26 in Tangeman University Center, 2600 Clifton Ave., and is open to faculty, staff, students and the public. The conference brings together representatives from across disciplines—from engineering, biology, ethics, the humanities, performing arts and more—to explore sensing through a variety of lenses, says IRiS director and associate professor of biology Nathan Morehouse. “We hope the IRiS event raises awareness of the amazing breadth of work happing on sensing at UC, while at the same time stimulating new conversations between the sciences, engineering, the arts and humanities,” he said.
