Law and Order: African Americans in Law Enforcement
There were no black policemen in the city of Cincinnati until Henry Hagerman was appointed in that position in 1884. Since that time, many African Americans have advanced in to positions in law enforcement including Police Detective, Police Chief, Judge and Warden. Please attend a panel discussion on the role that African American have played in keeping law and order. Panelists include Judge John Andrews West, Magistrate Judge Jack Sherman Jr. , former Assistant Chief of Police Michael Cureton and former police officer and current council member Wendell Young who will share their experiences of serving the Cincinnati community.
