Join the Social Justice Institute’s Rhonda Y. Williams and Misty Luminais for a viewing of video shorts and a discussion about how race intersects placemaking in the lives of women from East Cleveland.
Williams, founder and director of the Social Justice Institute, and Luminais, senior research associate and project coordinator, will lead the event, titled “Voicing & Action Project—Continuing Conversations: Placemaking and Race through the Stories of East Cleveland Women.”
It will be held Tuesday, Nov. 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. in Mather House, Room 100.
Stories shared at the event will be drawn from the Social Justice Institute’s archive of oral histories and focus on the lives of African-American women, particularly during the 20th century, as they and their families moved into East Cleveland from right around the corner or from Troy, Alabama.
The event will address the question: “How do women make a community their own? How has race shaped the places African-Americans call home?”
Attendees are invited to be part of the conversation and share their stories.
