Cookout with Cincinnati Federation of Colored Women’s Club

July 1, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for a cookout with the Cincinnati Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs – Reigning Royalty at their clubhouse in Walnut Hills!

This is an advocacy and fundraising event for the organization to spread the word of the wonderful work they do in their community and to highlight their historic building where they operate their organization.

————————-

Known as the C. H. Burroughs House, voted as one of CPC’s 2017 Impact Buildings. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places – NPS, the house was designed and constructed in 1888 by renowned architect, Samuel Hannaford.

The building was purchased by the Cincinnati Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs in 1925. The organization purchased the building at a time when black groups and individuals were often denied mortgages because of the color of their skin. After 20 years, the group had fully paid off the mortgage, and owns the building to this day.

Not only is this building important for the stunning architecture, but the social impact this building has had on generations of black women is an inspiring human story. Today the Federation helps cultivate and educate women; the federation had 40 chapters by the 1950s. The women established day cares, cultural art groups and scholarship awards. They also provided clothes and food for needy families, and volunteers for hospitals and retirement homes.

————————-

We will have lots of food, drinks, and yard games! Fun for the whole family! Members of the Federation will be available to give tours of the building and speak about its history.

**Suggested donation of $10.00 ** This goes toward general repairs that are needed to keep the house and the Federation running.
