Two brothers from Cleveland helped reshape American history.

Carl and Louis Stokes, along with others, created pathways, policies and programs that advanced civil rights, promoted urban issues and helped make the United States a more equitable nation.

This program will focus on their life story, one of ordinary people struggling to achieve extraordinary things in a city, nation and a world that held many barriers for people who were poor and black.
