Description

Examining the infamous conflict between a predominantly black community and a predominantly Jewish teachers' union, Gordon takes a new look at this historically rich and racially diverse community.

Reviews

"WHY THEY COULDN'T WAIT sympathetically chronicles a complex chapter in the struggle for racial equality. It serves as an important corrective to the mostly hostile mainstream accounts, and usefully recalls that many (if still too few) Jews joined in solidarity with the beleaguered Oceanhill-Brownsville commuity." -- Norman G. Finkelstein, author of THE HOLOCAUST INDUSTRY
