Modeled after successful street papers in major cities such as Nashville, New York, and Washington D.C., The Bridge publication features artwork and content primarily written by those who are homeless or have been homeless. Additional content is provided by a writing team of Rhodes students led by Caroline Ponseti and community member Nathan Bishop. The Bridge is entirely student directed. Memphis’ “street newspaper” first published on March 21, 2013, was founded by Rhodes students James Ekenstedt and Evan Katz, both members of the Class of 2015. The aim of this newspaper is to raise awareness around issues of homelessness and poverty while providing a sustainable source of income to those who have personally experienced homelessness. Caroline Ponseti, Class of 2015, also manages the newspaper.
