Prior to the Civil War, Ohio had more African American settlements than any other state–around 100 of them. Authors David Meyers and Elise Meyers Walker will discuss this fascinating aspect of Ohio history which is the subject of their new book Historic Black Settlements of Ohio (The History Press, 2020). This lecture and conversation/discussion will be held via Zoom meeting.

Ohio Book Talks is a new series of author-led discussions of new books covering different periods in Ohio history. Programs are presented by Buckeye Book Fair with the support of Ohio Humanities.
