The folks who produced the oral history series StoryCorps spent much of August working in downtown Cleveland. Some of the stories they gathered will eventually be heard on NPR - but others will be heard from time to time here on 90.3. This morning's story takes us back to Cleveland of the 1960s, a time when many African Americans were still making the move from the deep south to the Industrial north. Here's that recollection from sisters Doris and Elaine Jeffries. Their family moved to Cleveland from Alabama, in 1963.
