The Gary Anthology

Samuel A. Love is an artist, community organizer, and educator.

How I Found Belt
Shortly after Belt Magazine started I came across their article about a musician from Gary, Indiana. It was one of the first articles about Gary from an independent publisher that wasn’t condescending (and was well received by many residents) and I immediately became a fan. Then I discovered the City Anthology series and knew someday we’d do a Gary Anthology.
