This Forum will address several different aspects of the African-American experience in NYC as examined by recent Ph.D.’s from the CUNY Graduate Center. Kristopher Burrell will examine the role of ideology in the New York City civil rights movement and specifically the relationship between black intellectuals and the challenges to American liberalism during the mid-1960s. Kevin McGruder will speak about the making of Harlem's Strivers' Row while Carla Dubose will discuss the foundations of the Black South Bronx. And Thomas Harbison will speak about the changing priorities for the reform of Harlem's public schools between 1914 and 1954.
