Explore the ethnic history of Cleveland
David Bernatowicz, associate professor of history at Cuyahoga Community College, is the featured speaker at the Nov. 17 potluck dinner and program sponsored by the Bay Village Historical Society. The program will include a narrative history of the many ethnic groups that migrated to the Cleveland area from the early 19th to the 20th centuries. There will be a discussion of the migration of ethnic groups to Cleveland, the places where they worked, the neighborhoods they developed and the effect they had on the history of the city of Cleveland.
The event takes place at the Bay Village Community House. Social hour is at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and the 7 p.m. program. The historical society will provide the main entrée of kielbasa and sauerkraut. Guests are asked to bring their own place setting.
