Voicing & Action Project – Continuing Conversations: Placemaking and Race through the Stories of East Cleveland Women | Mather House 100, Case Western Reserve University, 11201 Euclid, Cleveland, OH 44106 — See map below | NOTE: This online event was updated 11:50 a.m., Nov. 8 to reflect a change in venue and start time.
The Case Western Reserve University Social Justice Institute is inviting the community to join a Nov. 22 discussion how race intersects place making in the lives of women from East Cleveland. Video shorts will complement the discussion. The stories are drawn from the Social Justice Institute’s oral history archives about the lives of African American women of East Cleveland during the twentieth century — whether they came from nearby communities or as far away as Troy, Alabama. The discussion, led by Dr. Misty Luminais and Dr. Rhonda Y. Williams, will consider questions such as:
• How do women make a community their own; and,
• How has race shaped the places African Americans call home?
The event is open to all to become part of the conversation and to share their stories. Light refreshments will be served. There is no cost to attend.
