Award-Winning Authors Discuss Race, Violence and Policing on Wednesday Webinar Hosted by Goddard Riverside

By Carol Tannenhauser

What is it like to endure and survive the intractable violence of inner city Chicago? What was it like to be stopped and frisked by police in New York City, while walking home from the supermarket with your young children?

These and other topics are discussed in two timely books — An American Summer by Alex Kotlowitz, and No Place On The Corner by Jan Haldipur — both winners of the 2019 Goddard Riverside Stephan Russo Book Prize for Social Justice.

On Wednesday, from 6:30 PM to 8 PM, these two authors will join a conversation about race, violence and aggressive policing, on a free webinar hosted by Goddard Riverside.

      If they really wanted to have a equal discussion of solutions that could bridge the gaps between the police and certain communities, they would have both side of the stop and frisk issue represented. This will just be an event of people how all have the same views and I’m sure there will be plenty of the NYPD are the only problem
