1Title:  Greater Cleveland Project Records     
 Creator:  Greater Cleveland Project 
 Dates:  1976-1981 
 Abstract:  The Greater Cleveland Project was a non-profit organization whose purpose was to ease the implementation of court-ordered desegregation in the Cleveland (Ohio) Public Schools. The desegregation of the schools was ordered by federal judge Frank J. Battisti as part of his decision in the case of Reed v. Rhodes. The Greater Cleveland Project formally organized in May 1976, having grown from an ad-hoc committee within the Interchurch Council of Greater Cleveland. The project dispensed information about desegregation, held seminars, and gave lectures to citizens and educators to promote non-violent desegregation of the schools. Prominent in the leadership of the organization were Leonard Stevens, Daniel Elliot, Jordan Band, Stanley Tolliver, and Francis Hunter. In 1978, Judge Frank J. Battisti order the formation of the Ofrice on School Monitoring and Community Relations at the suggestion of the federal court's Special Master and the leadership of the Greater Cleveland Project. Funded initially by the Interchurch Council, the Greater Cleveland Project was also funded by the Cleveland Foundation and the George Gund Foundation. Additional funding was provided from the federal government's Emergency School Aid Act. The Greater Cleveland Project ceased operation in 1981 when federal and local funding was not renewed. The collection consists of correspondence, budgets, funding proposals, and legal briefs relating to the desegregation case of Reed v. Rhodes.

2Title:  WELCOME Records     
 Creator:  WELCOME 
 Dates:  1971-1987 
 Abstract:  WELCOME (Westsiders and Eastsiders Let's Come Together) was founded in 1978 in Cleveland, Ohio, by teachers, parents, and concerned citizens to create an atmosphere of peace and racial cooperation in response to the possibility of violence during the desegregation of the Cleveland Public Schools. WELCOME activities, which involved community centers and churches, included a series of bridgewalks across the Detroit Superior Bridge, the distribution of tee-shirts, the establishment of WELCOME committees at each school, and WELCOME wagons that visited neighborhoods. Once desegregation took place, WELCOME clubs were formed in the newly desegregated schools. The most active students in each club formed the citywide WELCOME Leadership Institute in 1980, funded by the Cleveland and Gund Foundations. In 1984, funding ended, and the Leadership Institute evolved into Youth United to Oppose Apartheid. WELCOME and the Leadership Institute ceased to exist. The collection consists of correspondence, programs, bylaws, desegregation studies, financial materials, minutes, newsletters, pamphlets, permits, petitions, press releases, foundation proposals, reports, testimonials, and newspaper clippings.
