HAMILTON COUNTY SHINES LIGHT ON GREATNESS

What makes a star? Passion? Originality? Perseverance? For the Black music icons from Hamilton County, it started with a dream. Followed by the tenacity to never quit until that dream was a reality. Join us and experience greatness so close and personal… you can touch it.


Founded in 2021 by Hamilton County, the Cincinnati Black Music Walk of Fame will debut in Summer 2022 at The Andrew J. Brady ICON Music Center at the Banks in Cincinnati. We recognize the music created by those with Hamilton County and Southeastern Ohio roots has impacted funk, opera, hip-hop, gospel, R&B, rock, and more. Our interactive walk celebrates the power of music, the artists, and the creative reach of our region.
