The visit culminated with a last look at the spot where the Terminal Tower is located.

It's a building that has fascinated me more than any other back home and I saw it too gleaming with new vitality. Wow I thought, my city, Cleveland, is alive again ...

WHO WILL CRY FOR THE LITTLE BOY?
by Antwone Fisher

Who will cry for the little boy?
Lost and all alone.
Who will cry for the little boy?
Abandoned without his own?

Who will cry for the little boy?
He cried himself to sleep.
Who will cry for the little boy?
He never had for keeps.

Who will cry for the little boy?
He walked the burning sand.
who will cry for the little boy?
The boy inside the man.

Who will cry for the little boy?
Who knows well hurt and pain.
Who will cry for the little boy?
He died again and again.

Who will cry for the little boy?
A good boy he tried to be.
Who will cry for the little boy?
Who cries inside of me?

I was recently in my hometown of Cleveland Ohio and while visiting areas around the city, I decided to drive by the historic Karamu House. I reached my destination at the corner of East 38th and Central Avenue, and was astonished at seeing an enormous mural of Ruby Dee painted on the west wall of the Karamu House Theater. Ruby Dee grew up in Cleveland as well, and like many African American actors that hail from the city, she trained and performed at the Karamu House. Throughout her life she returned to her beginnings to train and inspire new generations of actors.

African American royalty, Ruby Dee was an American actress, poet, playwright, screenwriter and civil rights activist. She was born in Cleveland Ohio October 27th 1922. She died on June 11th 2014 in New Rochelle, New York. "We have had her for so long and we loved her so much," daughter, Nora Davis Day said. "She took her final bow last night at home surrounded by her children and grandchildren. We gave her our permission to set sail. She opened her eyes, closed her eyes and away she went."
