“[Bronx Faces & Voices] should be required reading for anyone interested in New York City or American history in the middle decades of the twentieth century.” Kenneth T. Jackson,  Columbia University

Edited by Emita Hill and Janet Munch, Bronx Faces & Voices presents the personal, uncensored stories of sixteen borough residents, an eclectic group of men and women who lived through a period of dramatic change in their urban environment.

These accounts, accompanied by the striking photography of Walter Rosenblum and Georgeen Comerford, chronicle the Bronx before, during, and after the troubled years of the ’70s and ’80s. Read about Bronx Faces & Voices in The New York Times (January 9, 2015).

The evening celebrates the publication of the book through readings presented by ID Studio Theater followed by a conversation on the Bronx then and now between the authors and award-winning documentarian Nina Rosenblum, moderated by writer and producer Adam Harrison Levy.

The event is part of First Person, a new conversation series produced by HMA2 + Superscript that features personal narratives about design and urban environments.
