Hough: A look back and forward
The City Club of Cleveland marks the 50th anniversary of the Hough riots (also known as the Hough uprising), a week-long period of unrest sparked by poverty and racism—followed by rapid population loss and decline that persisted for decades with a special discussion.
Hough is primed for a renaissance and is beginning to see the green shoots of economic development. But questions remain about how to chart a truly inclusive course for this important neighborhood.
Panelists include:Freddy L. Collier, Jr., Director, Cleveland City Planning CommissionCarolyn Watts Allen, former Public Safety Director, City of Cleveland, and Hough residentBarry Withers, Assistant Public Safety Director, City of Cleveland, and Hough resident
Tickets: $20 members/$35 nonmembers
