Mark Souther is a professor of history at Cleveland State University, and in his new book Believing in Cleveland, he takes on the issue of Cleveland’s decline form a one booming manufacturing town to a shrunken city with an inferiority complex.
Todd Michney, an assistant professor of history and sociology at Georgia Tech who got his B.A. at Case Western Reserve, has written Surrogate Suburbs: Black Upward Mobility and Neighborhood Change in Cleveland 1900-1980, a scholarly look at how middle-class blacks migrated from the inner cities to suburban areas, leaving high poverty behind.
Both authors will be appearing together at Visible Voice Books in Tremont to talk about and sign their books. It’s free.
