UNITY STATEMENT ON KING RECORDS
On behalf of Mayor Cranley, the City of Cincinnati, leadership of the King Records Legacy Executive Committee , Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation, the Evanston Community & the Bootsy Collins Foundation, reviving the King Records legacy together,
Since the Rock Hall and the City of Cincinnati established a historic marker at the site in 2008, we have been honored to welcome a growing number of educators, organizations, and champions across the globe for the cause of King on Brewster Avenue in the educating neighborhood of Evanston. We will continue to work together and further develop our partnership with the city to leverage new resources, to not only restore the amazing musical legacy, but also celebrate the unparalleled civil rights history which took place in the building. We will continue to prioritize King Records artists and legacies as our focal guiding point and inspiration – if we are given the opportunity to act in the sacred Brewster building. We seek to bring new life through King for generations to come and believe that our city’s renaissance will only
enhance & flourish our world.
We want to give a shout out to all of our
