Black Buckeyes: A Tale of Two Cities Black Buckeyes: A Tale of Two Cities   

Black Buckeyes: Tale of Two Cities examines the long, storied, and conflictual histories that African Americans have with Cleveland and Cincinnati, both Midwestern cities that mark critical points along The Underground Railroad and destinations of The Great Migration--the film will take a close look at what has become of them today. Produced and directed by the Reverend Dr. Leah Lewis, this film is a springboard to comparing the Cleveland experience to that of African Americans in Cincinnati.

This event is FREE and open to the public. Donations are welcomed.


Black Buckeyes: A Tale of Two Cities is supported by the Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation, as well as by SPACES Urgent Art Fund, and by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
