Society of the Cincinnati Cobra
is an online and onsite community of fans, supporters and advocates reigniting the Ezzard Charles story and re-introducing his life lessons to 21st Century audiences. We are working together with Cincinnati community leaders planning a public sculpture of boxer Ezzard Charles in a West End green space adjacent to the street that bears Charles’ name. Public announcements and celebrations are planned for summer 2017. In preparation for a call to action in support of the sculpture, the Ezzard Charles team is working on different onsite/offsite events as well as a refreshed website to build a community around the campaign.
