Cincinnati - Indelible images more than 400 years in the making are on display at the Cincinnati Museum Center. "America I Am: The African American Imprint " is an ambitious exhibit created by Tavis Smiley, the well-known African American political pundit, who hosts "Tavis Smiley" on PBS.
The traveling exhibition explores music, sports, slavery and politics.
Some items featured include Muhammad Ali's satin robe he wore training for his "Rumble in the Jungle", the King Key used by Martin Luther King, and Prince's purple guitar from his Super Bowl XLI half-time performances in Miami in 2006.
At the beginning of the tour, you will walk through the "Doors of No Return" from Cape Coast Castle in Ghana as enslaved Africans did long ago.
Actress Helen Hunt said it's a piece of work not to be missed.
When Hunt was in town last month for the SmartTalk Series at the Aronoff Center she encouraged the Tri-State to see "this marvelous" exhibit.
The exhibit runs through January 2. The Cincinnati Museum Center is located at 1301 Western Ave. Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. Call (513) 287-7000 for more information.
