The Michael Schwartz Library has partnered with the Cleveland State University History Department and Art Gallery to produce this online version of the exhibition, Each in Their Own Voice: African-American Artists in Cleveland, 1970-2005 as part of a new collection in Cleveland Memory.

The exhibition ran at the Art Gallery from January 23 to March 7, 2009 and featured work by 24 artists working in a wide range of media including film. Part of the preparation for the exhibition included interviews with each artist recorded as oral histories by the Cleveland State University History Department. Excerpts from these interviews have been made available along with the artists' work as well as portraits of most of the featured artists in this online representation of the original exhibition.

Listen and see for yourself what these talented artists have to say through their interviews and their art.
