Dayton's Reinvention


The city of Dayton, Ohio was once a bustling metropolis. It was home to the Wright brothers and the aerospace industry; it manufactured everything from typewriters to textiles to polonium. But the Gem City started falling on hard economic times in the 1980s. In this hour, we'll talk to Dayton residents who have documented the city's struggle in a very creative way, and participated in its remarkable resurgence.
