African-American Parade
Downtown Cleveland
June 4, 2011

Many people have suggested that African heritage should be celebrated in June rather than February. Cleveland Patrolman Lynn Hampton helped organize a Parade and Festival in downtown Cleveland to draw attention to the cause.

The Parade came down East 9th street and ended up at the Festival at Voinovich Park.

Enjoy these photos and video of highlights of the parade.
