Current and Controversial is a new series of community forums that explores the major issues facing our region, such as immigration, unemployment, the role of government, individual freedoms, and more. This first forum deals with the deindustrialization and rebirth of Cleveland, inspired by Shattered Dreams Revisited: The Death and Rebirth of the Midwest Industrial City, a new work by photographer and author Lauren Pacini. Pacini’s images of Cleveland focus on the sometimes troubling visual evidence of a city in the midst of a major transition. A powerful panel of experts addresses questions that face Cleveland.
