Believe in Cleveland, written by Daniel Gray-Kontar and directed by Tony Sias, is a narrative docudrama about the historic election of Carl B. Stokes Jr as the nation’s first African-American mayor of a major metropolitan city by combining poetry, song, dance and multi-media. The monologues and conversations captured are drawn from such primary source material as newspaper articles, autobiographical notes, and video clips; however, much of what appears in the piece is comprised of fictionalized accounts of the historical period.

The production is in partnership with Playhouse Square, Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) and Karamu House
