In celebration of Women’s History Month in March, the Library hosted a series of self-improvement workshops for women. The “Soul of the Village” event, which consisted of four themed workshops in February, attracted more than 300 women and a wide array of community leaders who served as panelists for timely and thought-provoking discussions.
Also beginning in February and running through April, the Library hosted “Women of a New Tribe,” a traveling exhibit showcasing portraits of highly successful, inspirational black women. In an effort to localize the exhibit, 23 Cleveland-area black women were also photographed and included in the exhibit. The grand opening event for the exhibit was attended by more than 300 people.
