Summer Book Discussion by GAPP/ACRU

Wednesday, August 9, 2023, 7:00 p.m., offsite in person and online.

Greater Anderson Promotes Peace (GAPP) and Anderson Churches for Racial Unity (ACRU) will host their Annual Summer Book Discussion using both in-person and online venues.

Dr. Mark Mussman, Ph.D., Director of Education with the Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition, will co-facilitate the discussion of his book, Steal the Street: The Intersection of Homelessness and Gentrification.

The discussion will take place on Wednesday, August 9, at 7:00 p.m., at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, 1950 Nagel Road, Cincinnati OH 45255-2570, and also on Zoom.

Steal the Street is a collection of short articles on gentrification, public space, and community voice. The articles were written for Streetvibes, a street paper in Cincinnati, Ohio, from 2015 to 2019. The focus of Streetvibes is homelessness, so each article focuses on a different aspect of homelessness and inequity in Cincinnati, much of it centered around the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine. Articles include original photographs throughout each chapter.

Steal the Street is available at:
