Originally composed mainly of English and German descendants, many Eastern European immigrants moved into the area during the migrations in the first half of the 20th century. In the 1960s and 1970s, as Cleveland expanded and the wealthy moved to the surrounding suburbs (including Parma (Parma, Ohio), Brooklyn (Brooklyn, Ohio), and Lakewood (Lakewood, Ohio)), the percentage of African Americans increased. The size of the Latino community has also increased. However, Cleveland City Council, with an eye on redevelopment and with the incentive of tax breaks, has lured an increasing number of suburbanites of all backgrounds back into the Ohio City area. This has led to a diverse community and melting pot. *''Sun Post'': Brooklyn (Brooklyn, Ohio), Independence (Independence, Ohio), Parma (Parma, Ohio), Parma Heights (Parma Heights, Ohio) and Seven Hills (Seven Hills, Ohio) '''Fawaz Mohammed Damrah''' ( '''Dan Fritsche''' (born July 13, 1985 in Parma (Parma, Ohio), Ohio) is an American (United States) professional ice hockey player currently playing for Genève-Servette HC of the Swiss National League A.

When Cleveland started to get television service in the late 1940s, WEWS-TV (Channel 5), the first television station in Ohio, picked a site on State Road. At the time, Parma was transitioning from a rural enclave to an urban area. Parma was selected for its high elevation. At almost 1,100 feet above sea level, it is 500 feet higher than downtown Cleveland. Other local stations followed, and nearly all local TV and FM radio outlets broadcast from Parma, or from other nearby suburbs. The television towers are taller than downtown Cleveland's tallest buildings, and can be seen from great distance in Cleveland, and most of its southern suburbs. Airline pilots and broadcast experts call the collection of towers in and near Parma the Cleveland area's "antenna farm". Parma is second only to Los Angeles's Mount Wilson (California) with the greatest concentration of antennas and transmitters in the U.S. '''Dan Fritsche''' (born July 13, 1985 in Parma (Parma, Ohio), Ohio) is an American (United States) professional ice hockey player currently playing for Genève-Servette HC of the Swiss National League A.
