Cleveland Green Book: Lake Glenn, Stonibrook, Cabin Club, Val's in the Alley

Document Type

Interactive Web Object


Green Book Cleveland is a web-based project that maps and documents Northeast Ohio sites of Black entertainment, leisure, and recreation listed in Victor H. Green’s Green Book directories of the 1930s-60s, as well as additional sites that never appeared in the guides. Green Book Cleveland documents Black social, cultural, and economic life, within and beyond Black neighborhoods, including in suburban and rural areas. Initiated in fall 2021, Green Book Cleveland is a project of the Center for Public History + Digital Humanities at Cleveland State University. The project uses the Center’s PlacePress plugin for WordPress (funded by a 2020-22 NEH digital humanities grant), which in this project’s case employs the plugin’s Location custom post type and Global Map block.
