    The audacity of a kiss : love, art, and liberation

    2021
    Summary: Rendered in bronze, covered in white lacquer, two women sit together on a park bench in Greenwich Village. One of the women touches the thigh of her partner as they gaze into each other's eyes. The two women are part of George Segal's iconic sculpture "Gay Liberation," but these powerful symbols were modeled on real people: Leslie Cohen and her partner (now wife) Beth Suskin. In this evocative memoir, Cohen tells the story of a love that has lasted for over fifty years. Transporting the reader to the pivotal time when brave gay women and men carved out spaces where they could live and love freely, she recounts both her personal struggles and the accomplishments she achieved as part of New York's gay and feminist communities. Foremost among these was her 1976 cofounding of the groundbreaking women's nightclub Sahara, which played host to such luminaries as Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Pat Benatar, Ntozake Shange, Rita Mae Brown, Adrienne Rich, Patti Smith, Bella Abzug, and Jane Fonda. The Audacity of a Kiss is a moving and inspiring tale of how love, art, and solidarity can overcome oppression

    Caribeños at the table : how migration, health, and race intersect in New York City

    2021
    Summary: "In a work brimming with fascinating firsthand voices and in-depth interviews with Caribbean Hispanics (she focuses on individuals self-identified as of Cuban, Dominican, or Puerto Rican ancestry) with high levels of circular migration to NYC and with health professionals working among these groups, Fuster eschews common understandings that take on only cultural or structural factors in favor of studying Caribbean Hispanic foodways at the intersection of culture, history, and structural contexts. She argues that addressing health problems and inequities in immigrant and ethnic communities requires, yes, engaging with understandings of cultural factors and traditional food practice ideals (the approach conventionally taken by nutritionists working with these populations)-but also more. While culture is an important aspect guiding health-related behaviors, it needs to be considered along with key structural factors including race, gender, and social class. Fuster's intersectional approach brings into view how health disparities and quality of life measures are related to food access, health, behaviors and overall wellbeing of migrant communities. By viewing and understanding these communities within an inequitable, interconnected and global migration experience, Fuster finds that the same global forces that create migration flows are also creating distinct conditions and 'othering processes' that do in fact result in different health outcomes in the receiving countries"

    The caring class : home health aides in crisis

    2021
    Summary: "The book is an absorbing look into our home health care system. To write the book, Richard Schweid rented an apartment in the Bronx, sat in on training courses provided by Cooperative Health Care Associates for home health aides, and lived among those he was interviewing. With one compelling story after another, Schweid introduces us to the people who take these jobs and gives us a visceral sense of what home health care entails, the agencies that provide it, the policies that regulate it, and the clients who receive it."

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg : the limits of power

    2021
    Summary: "This book explores Michael Bloomberg's mayoral successes and failures through the prism of the challenges he faced from several sources: the boundaries of municipal power imposed by the external constraints of state government, the limits imposed by federal and state courts, the internal obstacles faced in resolving labor union contracts. The book offers an incisive analysis of Bloomberg's policies during his long service as mayor of New York City and highlights the legacy Bloomberg left for de Blasio and other mayors"

  6. The Great Disappearing Act : Germans in New York City, 1880-1930

    The Great Disappearing Act : Germans in New York City, 1880-1930

    2021
    Summary: Where did all the Germans go? How does a community of several hundred thousand people become invisible within a generation? This study examines these questions in relation to the German immigrant community in New York City between 1880-1930, and seeks to understand how German-American New Yorkers assimilated into the larger American society in the early twentieth century. By the turn of the twentieth century, New York City was one of the largest German-speaking cities in the world and was home to the largest German community in the United States. This community was socio-economically diverse and increasingly geographically dispersed, as upwardly mobile second and third generation German Americans began moving out of the Lower East Side, the location of America's first Kleindeutschland (Little Germany), uptown to Yorkville and other neighborhoods. New York's German American community was already in transition, geographically, socio-economically, and culturally, when the anti-German/One Hundred Percent Americanism of World War I erupted in 1917. This book examines the structure of New York City's German community in terms of its maturity, geographic dispersal from the Lower East Side to other neighborhoods, and its ultimate assimilation to the point of invisibility in the 1920s. It argues that when confronted with the anti-German feelings of World War I, German immigrants and German Americans hid their culture - especially their language and their institutions - behind closed doors and sought to make themselves invisible while still existing as a German community. But becoming invisible did not mean being absorbed into an Anglo-American English-speaking culture and society. Instead, German Americans adopted visible behaviors of a new, more pluralistic American culture that they themselves had helped to create, although by no means dominated. Just as the meaning of "German" changed in this period, so did the meaning of "American" change as well, due to nearly 100 years of German immigration

  7. The Harlem uprising : segregation and inequality in postwar New York City

    The Harlem uprising : segregation and inequality in postwar New York City

    2021
    Summary: "In July 1964, after a white police officer shot and killed an African American teenage boy, unrest broke out in Harlem and then Bedford-Stuyvesant. Protests rose up to call for an end to police brutality and the unequal treatment of Black people in a city that viewed itself as liberal. A week of upheaval ensued, including looting and property damage as well as widespread police violence, in what would be the first of the 1960s urban uprisings. Christopher Hayes examines the causes and consequences of the uprisings, from the city's history of racial segregation in education, housing, and employment to the ways in which the police both neglected and exploited Black neighborhoods. While the national civil rights movement was securing substantial victories in the 1950s and 1960s, Black New Yorkers saw little or uneven progress. Faced with a lack of economic opportunities, pervasive discrimination, and worsening quality of life, they felt a growing sense of disenchantment with the promises of city leaders. Turning to the aftermath of the uprising, Hayes demonstrates that the city's power structure continued its refusal to address structural racism. In the most direct local outcome, a broad, interracial coalition of activists called for civilian review of complaints against the police. The NYPD's rank and file fought this demand bitterly, further inflaming racial tensions. The story of the uprisings and what happened next reveals the white backlash against civil rights in the north and crystallizes the limits of liberalism. Drawing on a range of archives, this book provides a vivid portrait of postwar New York City, a new perspective on the civil rights era, and a timely analysis of deeply entrenched racial inequalities"

  8. Philip Payton : the father of black Harlem

    • Ebog

    Philip Payton : the father of black Harlem

    2021
    Summary: "At the turn of the early twentieth century, Harlem-the iconic Black neighborhood-was predominantly white. The Black real estate entrepreneur Philip Payton played a central role in Harlem's transformation. He founded the Afro-American Realty Company in 1903, vowing to vanquish housing discrimination. Yet this ambitious mission faltered as Payton faced the constraints of white capitalist power structures. In this biography, Kevin McGruder explores Payton's career and its implications for the history of residential segregation. Payton stood up for the right of Black people to live in Harlem in the face of vocal white resistance. Through skillful use of print media, he branded Harlem as a Black community and attracted interest from those interested in racial uplift. Yet while Payton "opened" Harlem streets, his business model depended on continued racial segregation. Like white real estate investors, he benefited from the lack of housing options available to desperate Black tenants by charging higher rents. Payton developed a specialty in renting all-Black buildings, rather than the integrated buildings he had once envisioned, and his personal successes ultimately entrenched Manhattan's racial boundaries. McGruder highlights what Payton's story shows about the limits of seeking advancement through enterprise in a capitalist system deeply implicated in racial inequality. At a time when understanding the roots of residential segregation has become increasingly urgent, this biography sheds new light on the man and the forces that shaped Harlem"

  10. "Keep 'em in the East" : Kazan, Kubrick, and the postwar New York film renaissance

    • Ebog

    "Keep 'em in the East" : Kazan, Kubrick, and the postwar New York film renaissance

    2021
    Summary: "Away from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and the watchful eyes of the big studios, New York City re-emerged as a filmmaking center in the 1940s and 1950s. Filmmakers such as Elia Kazan, Sidney Lumet, Stanley Kubrick, and John Cassavetes built on their prior experience in theater, television, industrial films, and other aspects of the city's diverse cultural life, to create a film culture that would increasingly influence the financing, production and aesthetics of Hollywood films. Using on-location shooting to create a realistic, documentary style and relying on improvisatory practices, New York films had a distinct look and feel. Without studio financing, directors and producers raised funds and established independent production companies, creating the model that would go on to dominate Hollywood in the years to come. Richard Koszarski's magisterial history of the birth of independent cinema in New York City includes behind-the-scenes production histories of such iconic film as Kazan's On the Waterfront and Kubrick's The Killer's Kiss . The book also reveals the importance of "race films" in the history of New York City film. These all-black productions intended for African American audiences in urban ghettos and the rural South had been around New York City since the 1920s. They not only helped to keep the film business afloat in New York City but also nurtured and developed a core group of writers, directors, designers, and technicians that would become instrumental in the city's later growth as a center for filmmaking. New York's independent production companies also provided jobs for women that were not open to them in Hollywood. Finally, the book tells how Mayor O'Dwyer helped bring filmmaking to New York and how the relatively stable labor situation, particularly in comparison to Hollywood at the time, made New York a more hospitable place for directors"
