If you’ve got some time to kill, check out this vintage video about how racial change impacted Cleveland’s Buckeye neighborhood. Sad and unfortunate, but this history is still impacting the city in a big way.
One of the biggest take aways for me, and my friend Charlotte, whose father is a Hungarian immigrant who grew up in this neighborhood, is the packed sidewalks in Buckeye Road. Sheesh. It looks like Madison Avenue in New York. What a contrast with today!
Another thing, I apologize some of the wording in this video is a little dated and insensitive, by today’s standards.
Also, Cleveland State University won’t let me embed it, so you’ll have to follow this link: http://flash.ulib.csuohio.edu/library/montage/like-bubbles.html
