Whitehall Ohio
Race  Population  Percentage 

White  8,759 46.41%
Black & Other 10,115 53.59%

The majority of Whitehall residents are made
up of Black or other ethnic groups, yet the
City of Whitehall Mayor and The Parks and Recreation Director will not allow programming and other events which reflect the culture of
these groups, including allowing SEMM Foundation and Jazz 98.5 radio to present live jazz concerts in City controlled public parks.

Allowing Jazz In The Park And In The Whitehall Area Does This:

  • Creates more performance opportunities for musicians

  • Provides live jazz music entertainment, education and enjoyment

  • Helps the local economy & merchants

  • Provides family entertainment value

  • Promotes cultural diversity
  • Promotes a positive, inviting, progressive and welcoming
    perception of the Whitehall
    community and residents
  • Keeps Jazz Alive
