The Cincinnati Bengals shocked the NFL with their run to Super Bowl LVI in 2022, reigniting their fan base. Sparked by the exciting play of Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase, Bengaldom roared the loudest since Boomer Esiason and the Ickey Shuffle rocked the Jungle.

Join Jeff Suess, history columnist, prolific author, and librarian at the Cincinnati Enquirer as he shares stories from his latest book, The Cincinnati Bengals: An Illustrated Timeline.” Return to the earliest days when football legend Paul Brown founded the Bengals after being fired from the Cleveland Browns and the grudge matches when the teams met. Learn about quarterback phenom Greg Cook, whose career was tragically cut short. Experience the thrill of three Super Bowl appearances and shiver through one of the coldest games in NFL history. Through photos and stories, you will meet the most celebrated players to wear the stripes and the young stars of the dynamic 2021 team that took the league by storm.

A light dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m., presentation begins at 6 p.m. |

The lecture may be moved to Johnston Hall room 142 if capacity is reached.
