Ideas Sunday - April 7, 2019

Nearly 50 years ago, following a fire on the Cuyahoga River that attracted national attention, Cleveland Mayor Carl Stokes led reporters on a tour of the waterway. We'll look at what's changed in the half-century since.

Carl Stokes did something else of note in 1969. He invited Norm Krumholz to join his cabinet as planning director. He went on to serve Stokes, and two more mayors, before joining the faculty at Cleveland State University, where his vision of equity planning influenced generations of city planners.

Plus, we take you inside the Union Club of Cleveland for a look at its prestigious art collection.
