      Slavic Village: Bridging Valleys between History & Identity

      Join us for a trolley tour of hidden places in the historic Slavic Village that expose layers of history and identity. Learn about deep-rooted history from John Grabowski, historian from Western Reserve Historical Society, as he takes us around to unveil why people came to this area and what has happened since. This will highlight culture, race, religion, ethnicity, and much more. Which brings us to the question: "what definies your identity?". This will be the highlight of our discussion that follows the tour, along with a delicious dinner served by Saucission Cleveland.  About John Grabowski:  Professor John J.
