Civil Rights in New York City

From World War II to the Giuliani Era

Edited by Clarence Taylor

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Civil Rights struggles in the north in general and in New York in particular have long been neglected, although New York has a long history of political activism
  • This book is a major departure from established thinking about Civil Rights history.
  • Covers topics from New York City teachers unions, to garbage collection in Brooklyn, to blacks and higher education.
  • Most books on the Civil Rights Movement concentrate on the 1960s, but this book chronicles the struggle from World War II up until the 1980s
  • The book's illumination of an otherwise shadowed aspect of history will appeal not only to scholars and students of the Civil Rights movement, but to those of New York's history.
