Praise for Mark Naison's Communists in Harlem During the Depression:
"[Naison's] thoughtful, judicious study vividly conveys a heady atmosphere of political experimentation." The Nation
In this incisive collection of essays, educator and activist Mark Naison draws on years of research on Bronx history and his own experience on the frontlines of the education wars, unapologetically defending teachers and students from school reform policies that undermine their power and creativity.
Mark Naison is professor of African American studies and history at Fordham University. He is author of Communists in Harlem During the Depression and Whiteboy: Reflections on a Life Between Racial Boundaries.
