With World War I behind them, Americans lived it up
in the 1920s.   The energy and creativity unleashed illuminated ten
brilliant years.  Something was in the air, and music, technology, the
movies and radio made great strides.  Celebrity culture was invented Babe
Ruth made baseball the national pastime Lindbergh flew over the pond, and
women finally could vote.  We will explore this unique period of
American history through articles, power points, and videos.

Anne Lister was a 19th century English landowner who

is considered the first modern lesbian. She kept a journal

for most of her life and detailed her daily activities, travels,

and local gossip. Approximately 20% of the journal entries

are in code, developed by Anne Lister, and used by her to

discuss her relationships with women. Her journals

comprise almost 5 million words and are found in 26

volumes, plus another 16+ travel journals. The journals

were added to the UNESCO Memory of the World

Programme in 2011. The register citation notes the

journals “comprehensive and painfully honest account of

lesbian life and reflections on her nature, however, which

have made these diaries unique. They have shaped and

continue to shape the direction of UK Gender Studies and

BALLOTS AND BULLETS: CLEVELAND’S TROUBLED RACE
HISTORY AND LESSONS FOR TODAY


James D. Robenalt, Partner, Thompson Hine LLP


This course will explore author James Robenalt’s fourth
nonfiction history book, Ballots and Bullets, Black Power
Politics and Urban Guerrilla Warfare in 1968 Cleveland. The
Glenville shootout on July 23, 1968, between Cleveland
Police and Black Nationalists, is the focus of a series of
lectures on the Civil Rights movement in Cleveland and the
rise of Black Nationalism. Figures explored include Malcolm
X, who delivered his most important speech in Cleveland in
1964, the famous Ballot or Bullets speech Dr. King and his
many visits to Cleveland to support Carl Stokes in his race
to become the first African American mayor of a major US
city and Bobby Kennedy, who gave his fateful “Mindless
Menace of Violence” speech to the City Club of Cleveland
the day after Dr. King’s assassination. Special emphasis on
policing in Cleveland’s minority neighborhoods, Stokes’
massive “Cleveland: NOW!” antipoverty program, and the
impact of the demise of the national war on poverty and
Cleveland’s struggles that followed the summer of 1968.



MORE CINEMA OF OTHERNESS


Terri Mester, Part-time Fellow in SAGES, Adjunct Professor
in the School of Law, CWRU

Othering is a process where we create an identity by
looking at others who are different than us. This Other,
though perhaps based on knowledge of a real person
or people, is always shaped by the Self’s projected fears
and desires. At a cultural level, these projections result
in generally held stereotypes that the powerful use to
maintain their superior position. Movies are one place
where stereotypes of the Other are created and
maintained. Movies shape how we see, think and
feel toward the Other. In this course, we’ll approach the
African American Other through a different lens, plus
analyze four other ethnic groups.

Cleveland’s Cultural Gardens are a celebrated monument to the ethnic diversity of the city. Yet their history is embedded in other histories, some national, many international, and of course, the history of the landscape in which they exist. This presentation will examine that broader context of migration, immigration, war, peace, and ecology that has influenced their creation and history. It will also introduce a forthcoming book by John Grabowski and Lauren Pacini that examines this “landscape of diversity.” More
