Canton HOF Game; Pride Celebration; Non-Violent Resistance; Statehouse

A celebration will take place this weekend in Cleveland but not the one originally anticipated by those in the LGBT community.  After the sudden cancellation of the planned Pride festival, groups banded together to come up with a new celebration under a new title: Pride in the CLE.  We'll talk to organizers of both events.  Then, we'll spend some time with an author and activist using tactics familiar to the Civil Rights movement to protest  in the occupied territory of the West Bank.
