Who came to Cleveland and changed it forever? On June 13, Greg Deegan, executive director of Teaching Cleveland, will answer this question in a lecture titled, “The History of Immigration and Migration in Cleveland.” Deegan will discuss where immigrants settled and why, as well as the experiences of European immigrants and Black migrants in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Teaching Cleveland connects educators, youth, and community members to the city’s history and provides a collaborative forum for examining and addressing the current challenges facing Greater Cleveland. 

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon in Suite 100 of the Siegal Lifelong Learning Center, located at 25700 Science Park Drive. A light breakfast and coffee will be served before the lecture begins at 10:30 a.m.
