Book talk on the updated new 3rd edition of South Bronx Rising with author Jill Jonnes and Bronx activist Nilka Martell, who wrote the new forward. Thirty-five years after this landmark of urban history first captured the rise, fall, and rebirth of a once-thriving New York City borough—ravaged in the 1970s and ’80s by disinvestment and fires, then heroically revived and rebuilt in the 1990s by community activists—Jill Jonnes has returned and chronicled the ongoing revival of the South Bronx.
