This summer, The Stand offered a new storytelling series — From Where We Stand — in which South Side and West Side residents shared their families’ summer stories through photos.
We invite you to view participants’ photos during a final gallery reception for the project being held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, at the Link Gallery at the Nancy Cantor Warehouse downtown.
In the upcoming issue, our cover story is on Myah Lynell Baker, a soon-to-be teen mom living at the Salvation Army Parenting Center, who before April, was homeless.

Reception for From Where We Stand set for Sept. 11

Having arrived here at 17 when she was four months pregnant, Baker cannot imagine raising her daughter, due in mid-September, anywhere else.
