Rochester's Rich History - The History of Residential and School Segregation in Rochester

Rochester's Rich History - The History of Residential and School Segregation in Rochester In-Person

Join Democrat and Chronicle education reporter Justin Murphy to discuss the findings in his new book, Your Children Are Very Greatly in Danger: School Segregation in Rochester, New York. Your Children Are Very Greatly in Danger is a history of Rochester with clear relevance for today. The struggle for equity in Rochester, like in many northern cities, shows how the burden of history lies on the present. Drawing on never-before-seen archival documents as well as scores of new interviews, Murphy shows how discriminatory public policy and personal prejudice combined to create the racially segregated education system that exists in the Rochester area today.

Justin Murphy is a reporter for the Democrat and Chronicle, covering education in the Rochester area with an emphasis on the Rochester City School District. He grew up in Penfield and attended the University of Chicago and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
