Cleveland’s Suburb in the City: Development and Growth of the Lee-Harvard Neighborhood

October 6, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

clev-restoreWith funding support by Ohio Humanities, the Cleveland Restoration Society will host a community discussion about the experiences of middle-class African Americans moving into Cleveland’s Lee-Harvard neighborhood.

Developed after WWII, Lee-Harvard became the preferred neighborhood for the emerging African American middle class. However, the existing racially charged atmosphere further developed during the 1950s and 1960s as the non-white population increased.

The discussion will be held from 4-6 p.m. Oct. 6 at Cleveland State University’s Maxine Levine Goodman College of Urban Affairs Atrium, 1717 Euclid Ave. Professor Todd Michney, an assistant professor from the University of Minnesota’s School of History and Sociology will lead the discussion. Michney is the author of “Changing Neighborhoods: Black Upward Mobility in Cleveland, 1900-1980.”


This program is made possible, in part, by Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
