631 Ridge Avenue was purchased in the mid-1950s by Naomi and Cecil Dial of Youngstown, Ohio. Acquiring this home exemplified the upward mobility Black Americans could experience to a degree. This also included owning businesses, new cars and a boat. With a new baby daughter, the Dials had a promising life. But divorce soon left mom and daughter with only one promise left: their house. When the daughter got older and formed a family of her own, all the mother could offer was the house. As the city deteriorated and money was scarce, this family saw others move around and out of town while their house stood. When the daughter became a grandmother herself, she watched her son lay his child to bed in that house. But a series of unfortunate events threaten the future of the home a family has occupied for 50 years.
