A housing complex on the South Side honors two notable African American personalities: Lewis Latimer, a member of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, and Maya Angelou, a Pulitzer Prize nominee. The housing complex has terraces named after both. But an African American more familiar to the neighbors got a bigger honor. He had the whole housing complex named after him: Langston McKinney Manor.
March 21 Celebration Set for Joint Project of SU & Southside Community Coalition
The South Side Newspaper Project published its first print issue of The Stand newspaper in March of 2010. The issue debuted over Valentine’s Weekend with a launch party. At that time, we invited residents to ‘Fall in Love with The Stand’ – a free paper and website devoted to the South Side.
Now we invite our readers to celebrate our five-year milestone.
The celebration will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 21, at the South Side Innovation Center located at 2610 S. Salina St.
The event will welcome Keynote Speaker Sean Kirst, an award-winning columnist for Syracuse Media Group and a Stand reader.
The South Side Newspaper Project is a joint collaboration of the Newhouse School at Syracuse University in partnership with the neighborhood group the Southside Community Coalition.
Our goal is to have a positive impact on the community by introducing youth and residents to opportunities in journalism while also helping college journalism students gain essential skills needed in their future fields.
To learn more about our past five years, check out the timeline below.

Stop Proposed Cuts to CENTRO Service
On Thursday, Feb. 19, we had a meeting at City Hall in Syracuse concerning CNY Centro. Centro is proposing service cuts to the Syracuse area. Local 580 is not in agreement with these cuts. We believe they should be adding services and hiring more drivers.
The Mission of CNYRTA is to provide services which are Safe, Convenient, Reliable and Environmentally responsible with a goal of maximizing the taxpayers return on investment. Cutting services does not meet these standards.
