 Common Cleveland folklore points to the east-side as disadvantaged due to a lack of convenient freeway access. But would shaving a few minutes from the daily commute be worth the cost of the Cedar Lee and Larchmere districts, Buckeye neighborhoods, historic homes, and the beloved Shaker Lakes? Re-visit the dramatic defeat of the east-side freeways in the 1960ís as Mayor Carl Stokes struggled to govern a hollowing-out city and a fierce grassroots campaign fought to preserve the Shaker Lakes. After the screening, join a discussion with the filmís director. This event is free and open to the public and it is a part of the 2019 Cleveland Humanities Festival.
