TOLEDO ACCORDING TO… Elizabeth C. Harris

Years lived in Toledo: 30+
Occupation: Community Activist/ Urban Farmer
My story, in one sentence: It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.

Most people know me for: Having goats, leading the Glass City Goat Girls, basketball, and my sense of humor.


I wish more people knew me for: my passion for helping kids and community.

The best thing I’ve ever eaten in Toledo: Prime Rib at The Black Pearl.

The street I drive on most often: Cherry Street.

Best time I ever had in Toledo: Lil’ Wayne concert at the Huntington Center with my best friend.

If I could change one thing about Toledo: Remove the haters. Reduce drugs and crime.

Best view in Toledo: Top floor of the Park Inn overlooking the city at night.

If I knew I could get away with it: I plead the fifth.

Waka Flocka Flame

One song lyric to describe my ideal self: “I go hard in the paint” – Waka Flocka Flame

When I was in high school, I probably would have been described as: Class Clown. Central Catholic High School Class of 1996!


My first kiss in Toledo was: S. Darrington at Sherman Elementary.

The artists that I love are: the Lateef Brothers and the musicians I love are a lot of local rappers, including AocObama.

Toledoan I most admire: is Paula Hicks-Hudson. I love her commitment to community. She is my role model and I hope to follow in her Toledo City Council footprints.

If I could apologize to anyone: EYB (the initials of one of my best friends, we feud constantly).

The hardest decision I’ve made in the past year: Opt for surgery.
