German immigrants to Cincinnati created a German district known as Over-the-Rhine. This presentation describes the churches and institutions they created, and the contributions they made since the 19thcentury, covering the district’s rise, fall, and recent renaissance.

We would like to add a German Food Tasting and German Beer Tasting Element to this event.   Would you consider bringing a German Food or Beer (6 pack) to add to this event?   If you would bring food or drink please email jill@empoweruohio.org.  Thank You!
