In Conversation: The City College Layoffs
AFT members Mary Bravewoman & Tehmina Khan

Bird & Beckett is presenting an occasional sequence of Sunday morning streamed conversations from the bookshop stage on topics of interest to the neighborhood and the city. You can find them on our YouTube channel and our Facebook page.
