This Dorothy Burge again holding it.
There are many moving exhibits but the slave pen commands deep attention. I walked inside and thought of the people held there who would once again be separated from all that they have known and families who are dear to them. Two young men in their late teens or early twenties also came in and put the chains that were on the floor around their ankles. At first I thought they were getting ready to do a reenactment but then I discovered they were just experiencing the moment. The slave pen was on a Kentucky farm and brought to Ohio to be reconstructed.

The Great American Ball Park is in the rear.
As I continued to explore the area with friend, Latifah she suggested we walk toward the other end of Vine. The community at that end is a developing art community. It appears African Americans lived in the area and many of them still do. These are some of the murals on the buildings.
