The Cincinnati Project engaged faculty and over 400 students across the University of Cincinnati in research projects examining structural barriers to equity for women of color in Cincinnati.This research was translated into a mobile exhibition that traveled the city to share this work with multiple local communities. The exhibition included large panels of quoted excerpts, "listening benches" featuring audio excerpts from oral history interviews with local activists, and a series of small books as takeaway publications with deeper coverage of specific topics and projects. The modular design framed these diverse perspectives of the experiences of women of color in Cincinnati within a series of thematic questions: What is Home? What is Community? What is Ours? What is Fair? What is Action?
