A must-read for Cleveland. Poignant, gut wrenching, and still depressingly relevant.

To be honest when I picked this book up, I did not expect to read it cover to cover! It is amazing. It should be required reading for college and school students, especially in Northern Ohio. One of my favorite pieces is "I'm Guilty" by Akram Boutros, CEO of MetroHealth. If you only read one piece, make it this one.

Shelves: racism
This collection of essays, poems, interviews, speeches, and a graphic essay, arranged in sections named "Today," "Yesterday," and "Tomorrow," is essential reading for everyone in, around, or from Cleveland. Activists and residents in other cities will also find much to think about in the history and stories told here. Powerful.

I'm using this review space to save my own notes and quotes from the book.

I wanted to take a red pen to many of the pages, and I didn't quite feel like there was a coherent arc or through-line to the collection (aside from, you know, race in Cleveland), but most of the individual pieces were fascinating in their own rights and I'm glad that they were collected together here.
