Today, we are honoring Robert Madison. He is credited with being the first African American to earn a degree in architecture from an Ohio university.

In 1954, he also founded the first black-owned architecture firm in the state.

That firm went on to help design and develop some of Cleveland's most notable buildings such as Great Lakes Science Center, The Quicken Loans Arena and even the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
