GSCC in the News - Dec. 20

The Georgia Street Community Collective was featured in an Associated Press article on Dec. 20, 2008 about Detroit's blues extending past the auto industry.

We were lucky to have one of the writers, Corey Williams, come and visit the Garden and future Community Center and Market in October. He talked extensively with Cub and then sent a photographer to our last work day where we pulled the tin ceiling down in the market.

For those who aren't familiar with the Associated Press, it's the creme de la creme of the global news agencies. So, for the AP to include us in a story is quite a feat & honor. And the amazing part is when the AP runs a story, it goes all over the world on the news wire. We got picked up by the International Herald Tribune, which is the New York Times' global paper, MSNBC, papers all across the US and the story was the top story on Yahoo's main page at 9 pm on the 20th. Yahoo Malaysia even picked it up.
