Meeting of the Minds Speaker
Mansfield Frazier is a print and radio journalist who also is a vintner.
As the director of the non-profit Neighborhood Solutions, Inc. he established the Vineyards and Winery of Château in the inner city Cleveland neighborhood of Hough, where he resides with his wife Brenda.
The project initially was a reentry initiative that utilized the labor of residents from a nearby halfway house to establish the vines; many of whom have gone on to have successful lives after prison. Over the last seven years it has morphed into a “pre-entry” project that focuses on diverting youth out of the cradle-to-prison pipeline.
