Emita Brady Hill and Janet Butler Munch, editors of Bronx Faces and Voices: Sixteen Stories of Courage and Community, discuss the men and women who tell their personal, uncensored stories of life in the Bronx before, during, and after the troubled years of arson, crime, abandonment, and flight in the 1970s and 80s.

The voices are as eclectic as the borough itself, but all were determined to preserve their communities and combat the notion of the Bronx as an international symbol of urban disaster.

Ms. Hill spent 20 years at Lehman College, CUNY, as chair of romance languages, associate provost, and vice president of institutional advancement before becoming chancellor of Indiana University Kokomo. Ms. Munch is an associate professor and special collections librarian at Lehman College.
