Cincinnati is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and the county seat of Hamilton County. The population was estimated to be 333,200.
In 1829, a riot broke out, as anti-abolitionists attacked blacks in the city. 1,200 blacks left the city as a result and resettled in Canada. The riot and its refugees were a topic of discussion throughout the nation, and at the first Negro Convention held in 1830 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Riots also occurred in 1836 and 1841.In 1836, a mob of 700 anti-abolitionists again attacked black neighborhoods, as well as a press run by James Birney, publisher of the anti-slavery weekly The Philanthropist. Tensions further increased after passage in 1850 of the Fugitive Slave Act.
Harriet Beecher Stowe lived in Cincinnati for a time, met escaped slaves, and used their stories as a basis for her watershed novel Uncle Tom's Cabin. Levi Coffin made the Cincinnati area the center of his anti-slavery efforts in 1847.
Today, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, located on the Cincinnati riverfront in the middle of "The Banks" area between Great American Ballpark and Paul Brown Stadium, commemorates this era.
By 2001, decades of inner-city neglect, the crack cocaine epidemic of the 80s and 90s, and backlash against several violent incidents involving the overwhelmingly white Cincinnati police force and black residents reached another boiling point. In April 2001, racially charged riots occurred after police shot and killed a black man, Timothy Thomas during a foot pursuit.
Cincinnati is home to numerous festivals and events throughout the year, including The annual Midwest Black Family Reunion.
Cincinnati has given rise to popular musicians and singers Doris Day, Dinah Shore, Fats Waller, Rosemary Clooney, James Brown, Bootsy Collins, The Isley Brothers, Otis Williams, Mood, Midnight Star, 98 Degrees, The Deele, The National and alternative Hip Hop producer Hi-Tek and TraxxStarr call the Greater Cincinnati region home.
Cincinnati belongs to a climatic transition zone, at the northern limit of the humid subtropical climate and the southern limit of the humid continental climate zone. Summers are hot and humid, with significant rainfall in each month.

Joe Jordan (1882-1971) was born in Cincinnati, raised in St. Louis, and moved to Chicago in his youth. From 1900-05, Jordan concentrated on writing piano rags, but also contributed a song to Sons of Ham (1900).
Around 1905, he began a long career as a conductor and composer, working with James Reese Europe on Ernest Hogan's Memphis Students performance troupe. In 1906 he became music director of Chicago's Pekin Theater Orchestra. Jordan also worked in Chicago as a composer and conductor for several musicals. He contributed songs such as "Lovey Joe" to Ziegfeld's 1910 Follies. In 1939 Jordan directed the performance of "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" for the ASCAP Silver Jubilee.
