The Western Reserve Historical Society is proud to once again be a part of Common Ground, the Cleveland Foundation’s community-wide initiative to inspire connection, build community, and create positive change. This year, we will be exploring the theme of People, Place, and Shared Power through two of our exhibits at the Cleveland History Center, Women & Politics and Carl & Louis Stokes: Making History.
On June 5, join our experts as we dive into these exhibits to discover how citizens of Cleveland have exercised their power to effect change on individual, local, and national levels. After the tour, participants will break into groups to answer thought-provoking discussion questions based on the exhibits. Finally, the groups will come back together to share what they have learned and explore how the lessons of People, Place, and Shared Power can be used to make changes within their community.
Registration for this event is free but required. This event will be held both in-person at the Cleveland History Center and virtually through Zoom. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, in-person tickets are limited, but there is no limit on virtual participants.
