Last Saturday, August 4, Michney led a guided bus tour hosted by the Cleveland Restoration Society, titled The Roots of Black Sub-Urbanization. “It’s basically about the struggle to achieve the American Dream,” Michney says. “It’s the history of Cleveland’s Black middle class and looking toward the edge of the city for African Americans [who] started moving in the early 1900s.”

Last year, Michney published a book titled Surrogate Suburbs: Black Upward Mobility and Neighborhood Change in Cleveland, 1900 - 1980. The tour follows a book talk Michney held on Thursday.
