Cuyahoga River

“Crooked River Contrasts and Conversations” is a traveling multimedia exhibit and community dialogue series taking place in communities along the 100-mile Cuyahoga River. Six community galleries and 9 public Conversations featuring 14 humanities scholars connect the public to the complex history of the Cuyahoga, centered on the notorious 1969 burning. The project addresses a major environmental event in US history and centers around community and identity, confronting and making connections across different eras, exploring our sense of place and interdependence on natural areas, and shaping dialogues for the future. Partners include Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Northeast Ohio Broadcast Archives, Western Reserve Historical Society, Slavic Village CDC, Kent State University and Cleveland Memory Project/Cleveland State University Special Collections.
