4. The area today

These photos were taken in Cincinnati’s West End and combined with archival photographs of buildings that once occupied the locations. Beginning in 1959, urban renewal programs and the construction of I-75 displaced between 20,000 to 30,000 residents from the historically black neighborhood, then called Kenyon-Barr.

Aaron Franklin on Barbecue, a New Expansion and Those Long Lines

KUT: You do get sick of eating barbeque, though? 

Franklin: Well, I’m a borderline vegan right now.

KUT: Really? 

Franklin: No, no, I’m totally kidding. I don’t eat a lot. I taste stuff at work constantly. Everyday, I take a bite of this or make a little sausage wrap. But to actually hunker down with a tray of meat, it doesn’t happen so much.
