RNC Prep and the Cleveland Humanities Festival
100 days out from the Republican National Convention, we’ll get an update on how prepared Cleveland is with Host Committee President and CEO, David Gilbert. Plus, April 1st through 10th is Case Western Reserve University’s first ever, Cleveland Humanities Festival. This year's theme is "Remembering War"-- exploring the brutality and aftermath of war through art, education and performance. It’ll bring together 20 of Northeast Ohio’s cultural institutions. We’ll preview the event on our program and look at topics that impact Northeast Ohioans – including how to treat our own veterans who return from combat.
