A distinguished list of musicians and local leaders all wearing white gathered along the river to celebrate a project two years in the making.

They all said they hope the Cincinnati Black Music Walk of Fame will shine a light for the rest of the country to see the impact of the region’s Black musicians.

“We invented the funk. We are the funk,” said Ron Avant, who goes by the stage name T.Nava. Avant grew up in Cincinnati’s Kennedy Heights neighborhood and is now the keyboardist for the band Free Nationals, which has backed popular singer/songwriter Anderson .Paak. He’s one of the 60 Black music influencers honored in the Walk of Fame “It takes people like us to go out and let the world know what the funk is. And Cincinnati is funky.”
