Ludlow Community Association Marker Unveiling, October 20, 2022
Members are invited to the unveiling of a historical marker for the Ludlow Community Association on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 4 p.m., at the intersection of Hampton and Corby Roads in Cleveland.
This ceremony will recognize the Ludlow Community Association as a national example of a neighborhood development model. Established in 1957 after the bombing of a home that belonged to an African American family, it remarkably reversed white flight and maintained a well-balanced, integrated neighborhood for at least 30 years and rebuked widely-held beliefs about integrated living. For this reason, the Ludlow neighborhood has been selected as a site of significance on Cleveland’s African American Civil Rights Trail.
The event will feature a historian, public dignitaries, as well as current and past officers of the Ludlow Community Association.
The event will take place rain or shine. Free on-street parking in the neighborhood will be available.
