Description: Activist and scholar Kitty Kelly Epstein tells the unique story of a city that recruits a progressive mayoral candidate; defeats a political machine; mobilizes a thousand residents to make policy; and then implements many of the policies created by this participatory process. Violence, jobs, education and gentrification are all addressed by the on-going social justice movement and its victories, including a 40% drop in the homicide rate, 8,000 likely new jobs, and a program that produces diverse and effective teachers. This very readable book will be useful to urban studies, sociology, education, ethnic studies, civic engagement, political science, and policy studies classes, and those who are studying protest movements like Occupy. The author explains the history that created urban inequity and the racial wealth gap, and then proposes on-going strategy and tactics for social activists in every city. Her co-authors, Taylor and Mayfield, add their own intimate perspectives on these dynamic developments.
