About the Program:

The experience of middle-class African Americans moving into Lee-Harvard was echoed by people across the nation. Dr. Michney will incorporate the broader African American experience into this talk, which will address the story of Lee-Harvard through the 1980s.

In collaboration with Councilman Terrell Pruitt, the Harvard Community Services Center and Cleveland State University's Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs, the Cleveland Restoration Society is pleased to present two discussions that explore the cultural heritage of Ward 1.

Join us on August 17 and October 6 as we celebrate the rich history of the larger Lee-Harvard community which established many of the first citizen's councils and neighborhood associations in the region. Each event will focus on a different time in Ward 1's history.
