Rediscovering The Lost City of Bronzeville Article

This article is part of a larger effort to excavate, document and preserve the history of a storied Black city within the city of Columbus, Ohio. Bronzeville, once a bustling enclave, was governed by a Black mayor and all-Black cabinet. Unfortunately, this is a history that is unknown by many and underappreciated by others. This article chronicles a community’s effort to rediscover a lost story and in the process put Bronzeville in its proper cultural and political place in history.
