Madison Street

I was able to visit one of the streets my Great Great Grandmother Minnie Belle and my Grandma Clittee lived on in the mid 1920s and early 1930s in Campbell Ohio formally known as East Youngstown. Campbell is where my grandma spent majority of her adolescent years before heading back down to Alabama. The 1919 steel strike brought hundreds of black southerners to Youngstown, Ohio. This influx of black southerner was part of the Great Migration, most of them settled in East Youngstown which was home to one of the Youngstown Iron Sheet and Tube plants. Edward Stacks, Minnie’s husband worked at the Youngstown Iron Sheet and Tube Company. Its was pretty cool to be able to go back to the place my grandma, great great grandma called home for over ten years.
