about this book

In monologues based on interviews with 26 subjects ranging from The Reverend Al Sharpton and Professor Leonard Jeffries, to Rabbi Joseph Speilman and Norman Rosenbaum (Yankel Rosenbaum's brother) to several men-and-women-on-the-street, Smith exposes and explores the black-Jewish tensions that erupted into outrage in the streets of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, in 1991. Foreword by Cornel West.
