Transgender Activists Push For Equality At City Club Forum

From L to R: Journalist and moderator Connie Schultz, Susan Becker, Professor of Law Emerita, Cleveland State; Henry Ng, Clinical Director, PRIDE Clinic; Stacey Parsons, facilitator at TransFamily Support Group; and Darius Stubbs, teaching artist An introspective, respectful and sold-out City Club audience gathered to consider the long march to equality for transgender people in Northeast Ohio. Activist Stacey Parsons spoke directly to the elected officials in the room: "Without your support, nothing can change. Your being here says so much to the community." Darius Stubbs, a Cleveland teaching artist, added that “public policy helps change the city and if changes are made there, then people have to evaluate where they stand personally." The session opened with Dr. Kevin Ng, who... Read More →

Researcher Richard Rothstein Makes Compelling Push To Address Modern Segregation At City Club Of Cleveland

Photo credit | Donn R. Nottage In a popular U.S. high school history textbook, The Americans, there is only one sentence—in passive voice—on housing discrimination among more than 1200 pages of text: "African-Americans found themselves forced into segregated neighborhoods." So noted researcher Richard Rothstein, who cited this fact as an exemplar of American "collective amnesia" when it comes to how we discuss segregation. Such disingenuousness, he told the City Club of Cleveland, keeps our nation from righting past wrongs.  In October, the Economic Policy Institute published Rothstein’s latest scholarship: "The Making of Ferguson: Public Policy at Root of its Troubles." This work, praised for its incisive analysis by Ta-Nehisi Coates, synthesized the cumulative effects of... Read More →

New Report Details “The Making Of Ferguson”: How Governmental Policy Created A Racial Nightmare

Credit: Missouri History Museum, St. Louis When Atlantic Monthly correspondent Ta-Nehisi Coates' spoke in Cleveland in August about reparations, he touched only briefly on the killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, in Ferguson, Mo., earlier that month. “All I want to see is some history of the housing there," he said. "We can begin with Mike Brown laying on the ground and folks rioting. But there’s just a whole host of questions behind that. How did his family get to live there? What are the conditions like? What’s going on there?” Researcher Richard Rothstein at the Economic Policy Institute has dug up some of the answers in his new report, "The Making of Ferguson: Public Policy at the Root of its Troubles." On Twitter, Coates called it the “best researched... Read More →

Discrimination In The Heights: The Uphill Battle Of African-American, Jewish Families In Early 20th Century

Where we live is bedrock to our identities.  For half of the 20th century, racial covenants embedded in the property deeds of homes in Shaker Heights, Ohio, and nearby Forest Hills “deferred but did not defeat the suburban dreams of Jews and African Americans,” reports historian Marian Morton. An emeritus professor of John Carroll University, Morton gave a lively, standing-room-only talk at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood, Ohio. She showed a 1930 advertisement for new homes in Forest Hills, a neighborhood straddling Cleveland Heights and East Cleveland, which promised “surroundings . . . where your neighbors are inevitably people of tastes in common with yours . . . The careful restrictions placed on Forest Hills today will not be lowered.” Racial covenants... Read More →
