Jason Sokol talked about his book, All Eyes Are Upon Us: Race and Politics from Boston to Brooklyn, in which he explores the reputation of the nation’s Northeast region as a place of racial equality and strong support for African-American civil rights. In his book, he argues that in reality, blacks were relegated to living in “ghettos” and working menial jobs until Northern leaders challenged the citizenry to practice what they were preaching. He talked with Michael Myers, executive director of the New York Civil Rights Coalition. close
