Humanity in the Street: New York City 1960-1989 documents the resilience and power of the multiracial humanity that American photographer Builder Levy experienced in the city streets of New York during these decades. At that turbulent time, people around the world were struggling for freedom and independence and throughout United States people were marching in the streets for improving their life conditions. This exhaustive monograph gathers pictures that Levy took during the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam protests in the 1960s, the peace march that was held in 1962 in response to the Cuban Missile Crisis; the poverty-ravaged Brooklyn of the 1960s, 70s and 80s; the inner city communities where he was a New York City teacher of at-risk adolescents for 35 years; Martin Luther King at Reception in 1968 after the W.E.B. Du Bois Centennial Tribute at Carnegie Hall where he gave the keynote speech; and marches and demonstrations in support of the Freedom struggle; for a NYC civilian review board and to stop police killings; for quality education for all NYC children, and against NYC school segregation.
