CEO Candace McGraw of CVG, who hosted the unveiling, said the display was created so the thousands of travelers who come through CVG will see them until construction of the official Cincinnati Black Music Walk of Fame outdoor interactive park at The Banks is complete in the summer of 2022.

The four stars unveiled during the ceremony were honoring Otis Williams, Bootsy Collins, D. Charles Fold and the Isley Brothers.

“CVG is pleased to be able to display the stars honoring the inaugural class of the Cincinnati Black Music Walk of Fame,” said McGraw. “During the upcoming holidays and into 2022 until the stars are installed at the Banks, we are glad to showcase great Black musicians from Cincinnati to visitors to our region, as well as travelers who may be returning home, to inspire pride and foster awareness of the legacy of these great artists.”

This is the first tourism infrastructure project that will create a music corridor on the Banks.
