Hello! I am looking for social/political histories of 4 neighborhoods in Brooklyn from the 1960s forward; the neighborhoods are Brownsville, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Kensington and Flatlands. Any information that can help me towards creating activism timelines in these areas is great! Also, I'm looking for information on the 1968 New York Teacher's Strike centered in Brownsville and Ocean Hill, and the Beth-El Hospital Workers Strike, which I believe was in 1962.
This project will eventually be focused on existing vacant lots in these neighborhoods so any tips on/histories of/ information on vacant lots in brooklyn or these specific neighborhoods would be great!
