Fordham Conversations: Pure Bronx

by Robin Shannon, Alen Kanlic
Naison and Shannon

George Bodarky

Pure Bronx looks at the diversity of the borough and two kids trying to make it out of the ghetto

This week on Fordham Conversations we take a literary trip through the gritty streets of the South Bronx with Fordham Professor Dr. Mark Naison and his new book “Pure Bronx”.
It’s a story about a young couple and the means they use to try and escape the poverty, desperation, and frustration that can sometimes come with living in New York City’s poorest borough.  There’s also a cast of characters that provide an opportunity for the reader to see the South Bronx through a variety of different, ethnic points of view.  

Music Featured on the Show in Order of Appearance:
