Fordham Conversations Host Robin Shannon and Fordham Professor Dr. Mark Naison take a literary trip through the gritty streets of the South Bronx with Naison's book “Pure Bronx”.  

It’s a story of 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.  Listen here.
