Court Celebrates Black History Month 2020

Cleveland:  The Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court is once again hosting a display of student art as part of a month-long celebration of Black History Month.


Students from Euclid High School, the Cleveland School of the Arts, Thomas Jefferson Newcomers Academy and Lakewood High School have loaned their Black History Month-themed works to the Justice Center.


"Every year, this display truly amazes me,” says Court Community Outreach Coordinator Darren Toms. “The first time I get to see these new artworks by Cuyahoga County students, I realize how much talent these young people have. Every time I pass by the display, I see people admiring the student’s works.” 


The art is on display on the first floor for the public to enjoy. It includes sketches, paintings, digital art, sculpture and photography.


The Court is also celebrating Black History Month on its website ( with in-depth profiles of African-American judges and attorneys who have had significant impacts on the judicial systems in Cuyahoga County and Ohio.


The art display and profiles will be available through the month of February.
