Add to Calendar   09/17/2019 07:00 PM 09/17/2019 08:30 PM America/New_York Freeway City Screening - GCUFF

 

Freeway City will be a featured selection for the 2019 Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival. Freeway City offers an important chronicle of the 1960's Freeway Fights that successfully halted four freeways from being constructed on Cleveland's east-side.

 

Learn about how the municipal leadership of Mayor Carl Stokes and an impassioned grassroots campaign in the Heights blocked a freeway that would have devastated the east-side. Learn how close we came to losing the Larchmere and Cedar-Lee business districts, the Shaker Lakes, and large parts of the Buckeye neighborhood.

 

How were the freeways stopped and what does it mean for us today?

 

Directed by Brad Masi and Narrated by Dee Perry.
