Monroe Street co-named John Lewis Steptoe Place

Thank you from Bweela Steptoe 

After a three-year long journey all of my hard work has paid off. On August 27, 2016, the day before my father John Lewis Steptoe passed away 27 years ago. Monroe Street between Ralph and Howard where John Lewis Steptoe, the award-winning author and illustrator of children books grew up and lived most of his life. Was honored by having the street co-named after him to John Lewis Steptoe Place.

This would not have been at all possible with out the loving support of all of the wonderful business and community members that help to make this celebration an everlasting memorable tribute. I would like to publicly thank all of the people who played a key part in contributing to making the John Lewis Steptoe Place co-naming a great success!
