  • Rating: NR
An African Proverb states: "Until the lions have their own historians, tales of hunting will always glorify the hunter." The documentary "Glorifying the Lion" captures life for Cincinnati's prominent senior African Americans from the 1930s through the 1960s. These oral histories are powerful stories of the experiences, struggles, challenges and triumphs that make up our city's culture.
