The 1960s Grassroots Struggle To Integrate Cleveland Heights: zoom discussion 1/25

Zoom discussion with author Jessie Kaeser
Tuesday 1/25/2022 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Forest Hill Presbyterian Church Black Caucus, endorsed by UUCC Racial Justice Leadership Team

In 1960, the African American population of Cleveland Heights was less than one-half of one percent. Ms. Susie Kaeser wrote a book, “Resisting Segregation,” detailing the multi-racial grassroots efforts to integrate Cleveland Heights. Remarkably, despite overwhelming odds they succeeded in transforming Cleveland Heights into the welcoming multi-cultural city it is today. Tuesday evening, June 25, beginning at 7 p.m., via ZOOM, we will be interviewing Ms. Kaeser about this fascinating history. For the ZOOM link please email blackcaucus@fhcpresb.org.
