Nicole Beharie plays a Fort Worth single mom who has faced hardship since being crowned "Miss Juneteenth" when she was a teenager. Now she’s preparing her own daughter for the local pageant (and the college scholarship that accompanies it), but the rebellious 15-year-old resists.
Cleveland has never followed anyone else’s rules, we made our own. That’s because the city where rock was born knows a thing or two about passion, freedom and doing things your way. Sure, there’s been pressure. But under the right conditions, pressure can create diamonds.
So, if you like a bit of grit mixed with sophistication in a place where you can eat bucatini pasta served with beef jerky, dance to world music on the front lawn of a renowned art museum or do yoga in front of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – and all in a city where we don’t take ourselves too seriously – then come to Cleveland. We’d love to have you join us.
We’ve never been flashy, trendy or perfect. And for that, you’re welcome.
