NYC History

This series of video lectures traces the history of New York City through threads that give context to The City’s modern relevance, as well as its present tensions. Highlighted are economic and social struggles for equity and liberation from the marginalized groups who allowed for the creation of arguably the most significant metropolis of the present era.

Further, are two templates to add to this story through the collection of oral histories.
