Community Guidebook

Community Resources

We have curated a catalog of community resources available in Greater Cincinnati — similar to the historical “Negro Motorist Green Book.” This catalog consists of area businesses and organizations that provide services and products within our community. Use these resources with confidence that you’ll be met with a collaborative, judgment-free and inclusive experience. Click on the image of the “Negro Motorist Green Book” to learn more about the guide that provided Black Americans advice on safe places to eat and sleep when they traveled through the Jim Crow-era United States for close to 30 years. The Green Book was first published in 1936 by Harlem-based postal carrier Victor Hugo Green.

Cris & Shawn is a collection of contemporary jewelry designed by Crishana Manigan in Milford, Ohio. As a jewelry designer, her work embraces a minimal aesthetic by creating structural silhouettes with metal. Taking inspiration from her sketches, Crishana forms by hand using sheet metal and wire to manipulate an original flat dimension. The use of hammers, files, and flame help to create scale through shapes and movement in lines. The resulting work is an exploration of jewelry as lightweight wearable sculpture.
