Sixteen Stories of Courage and Community
By Emita Brady Hill and Janet Butler Munch
Emita Hill is Chancellor Emeritus of Indiana University Kokomo. She spent 20 years at Lehman College in various roles including Department Chair, Dean and Vice President, as well as Founding Director of the Bronx Regional History Project. Janet Munch is Associate Professor and Lehman’s Special Collections Librarian. She previously worked at Bronx County Historical Society.
Bronx Faces and Voices presents 16 individuals sharing personal candid stories of their lives in the Bronx
from its early glory days through troubled years of arson, crime, and flight in the 1970s and 1980s, in anticipation of a better and more prosperous future.
The voices in this volume are as eclectic as the Bronx itself: elected officials, religious leaders, and activists determined to preserve the beauty of the parks and safety and stability of their communities. Each participant played a positive role in a pivotal time.
