Leon Bibb, award-winning journalist and broadcaster, shared his love for Cleveland through a wonderful personal narrative. By taking us from his childhood in Cleveland through to the present day, Leon set the stage for an important conversation around how best to honor this history and the progress we've made in 2019, the 50th anniversary of the infamous Cuyahoga River fire.
This talk was in partnership with Stokes50CLE. The City Of Cleveland was proud to be a partner in the year long, community-wide commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of Carl Stokes’ election as mayor of Cleveland. Mayor Stokes and his brother Congressmen Louis Stokes, played key roles in the advancement of the city and the nation through the civil rights movement, environmental movement, and beyond.
