New from Dog Ear Publishing: “The Neighborhood of Saturdays”

“The Neighborhood of Saturdays: Memories of a Multi-Ethnic Neighborhood on Indianapolis’ Southside.” The book recounts the history of Southside as told through the eyes of the African-American and Jewish people who lived in that community.

Using archival research and conducting oral history interviews with community elders, IUPUI anthropology students working under the direction of Susan B. Hyatt, associate professor of anthropology in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, collected and assembled a wealth of material that tells the story of this neighborhood that was once an important gateway to Indianapolis for both European immigrants and migrants from the South, who all came seeking better opportunities for their families.
