Cincinnati Human Relations Commission, History, 1943-2013

Thomas E. Wagner

Michael Maloney


The speakers will review the history of intergroup relations in Cincinnati from 1943-2013 through the lens of the Mayor's Friendly Relations Committee/Cincinnati Human Relations Commission and that of the national movement to establish local government-sponsored intergroup relations agencies.  The audience will hear stories about local figures in this movement and perhaps share stories from their own experience of local history.

Michael Maloney is a community organizer and social justice advocate best known for his work with Appalachians. With Christopher Auffrey, he is author of The Social Areas of Cincinnati: An Analysis of Social Needs.
