The Voicing & Action Project: Continuing Conversations is a project of the Social Justice Institute of Case Western Reserve University. Each collection focuses on a different cross-section of interviews collected by Community Researchers in the city of East Cleveland. A collection of humanities scholars, including historians, cultural anthropologists, and library scientists, have curated content that interpret questions of what it means to make a meaningful life at a particular moment in time, in specific circumstances. Interactive in nature, this website invites you to participate by submitting your own memories, as stories, pictures, or short videos, along the same thematic lines. Our first collection showcases the stories of African American women in East Cleveland by placing them in larger cultural and historical context by reflection on how they speak about their personal and collective histories.

This program is made possible, in part, by Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this website do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
