Dr. Alice Green's Latest Releases




The latest book by Dr. Alice P. Green, Executive Director of the Center for Law & Justice.

"Outsider: Stories of Growing Up Black in the Adirondacks" details Alice P. Green's experiences as her family grappled with poverty, race and acceptance in the mid-20th century. This memoir, prompted by a recent gathering of Blacks and whites in the Adirondacks for a discussion on race relations, explores perceptions of Black families in the '50s and '60s and whether Blacks are still viewed as outsiders or welcomed with open arms in this four-season, recreational playground dominated by white residents.

This book adds to the narrative on whether more work should be done to diversify the Adirondack region and can be used by individuals, groups, and agencies to further those discussions.

We Who Believe in Freedom

The Black community of Albany, NY has a poignant history of bravery in the face of oppression - from the 19th century operators of local stations of the Underground Railroad, to the modern day abolitionists that occupied Arch Street last April to protest police violence.

In 'We Who Believe in Freedom', celebrated activist Dr. Alice P. Green highlights the impact that criminal justice activism and political reform have had on Albany's Black communities since the early days of enslavement to the present day.

Part memoir, part social justice history - Dr. Green shares her life experiences and knowledge of social justice movements past and present.
