BLACK HISTORY

Gross remembers a segregated Cynthiana

By Kate Darnell

Born and raised in Cynthiana, Lois Gross wasn’t always able to enjoy her hometown’s hot spots.

At Biancke’s, a line on the floor told Gross where to stop when ordering a Big Joe hamburger.

A backside stairwell led Gross to the balcony at Rohs Opera House where she would watch the newest movies with friends and family.

But at ‘Dixie,’ the teenage hangout on Walnut Street, Gross couldn’t even enter the front doors.
