On Feb. 18, 2021, members of the Hough Youth Advisory Board gathered for a virtual event
hosted by the Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University to talk about their work. You can watch this recording of the event to learn more about the youth council’s projects and plans:
Members of the Hough Youth Advisory Board co-wrote the “Hough Freedom Zone”
performance combined poetry, theatre, and dance to tell the story of how Hough has been impacted by the historical legacy of “redlining” – a federal government discriminatory practice in which housing stocks were increased and segregated according to race, and African-Americans and other people of color were left out of the new suburban communities — and pushed instead into urban housing projects.
