A Day at the Union Terminal Museum

This past Saturday, Miss Black Ohio attended the Dada Rafiki African American Art event. The Dada Rafiki exhibit showcased an array of art work created by local artist. The event was home for just under 100 vendors of different arts and crafts, and had many programs that highlighted the artistic talent of many native Cincinnatians.

Miss Black Ohio, Brittainy Walton, enjoyed herself by looking through the art, greeting guests, and taking photos with those who wanted a one on one talk with her. She also gave an impromptu performance of "Love Letter", an original piece. There were many memorable moments that Miss Black Ohio had, including but not limited to an encounter with the Tuskegee Airmen whom were delighted and proud to meet and talk with Brittainy, meeting with Miss Annie Ruth (the event coordinator and artist), and getting special recognition for attendance to the spoken word presentation by Ms. Sharon Draper.

Photos of the event will follow (, But if you are interested in having a chance to meet with Miss Black Ohio, have her come to one of your event, or if you just want more information on the pageant, contact the MBO staff at the following email :
