Divided by Design
Cleveland is one of the nation's most segregated metropolitan areas, and the black-white divide has primarily disadvantaged generations of families in majority black neighborhoods. ideastream's week-long reporting project, "Divided by Design," will examine the creation, and perisistance, of the racial divide. Join us for The Sound of Ideas as we kick off "Divided by Design" with in-depth conversation.
