Book Launch

Come join us as we celebrate the publishing of our book The Making of Cleveland’s Black “Suburb in the City”: Lee-Seville & Lee-Harvard at the Harvard Community Services Center!

This book, the first-ever published history of these neighborhoods, documents and celebrates a success story, a Cleveland case of Black community-building.

Our story starts just west of the intersection of Lee and Seville Roads, where a Black enclave took shape in the 1920s. By establishing a foothold in Cleveland’s far southeastern reaches, African Americans laid the successful groundwork for this vicinity to develop as a Black “suburb in the city.”
