review å Front Stoops in the Fifties 106 Ongside innocence was ignorance Olesker tells the story of Nancy D’Alesandro Pelosi daughter of the mayor who grew up in a political home and eventually became the first woman Speaker of the House Thurgood Marshall schooled in a racially segregated classroom went on to argue Brown v Board of Education of Topeka before the Supreme Court and rewrite US race relations law Even the music changed Olesker’s doo wop portrait of Balti is nostalgic but it has a hard edg. Interesting but written from a specific perspective Would be better without the bias but still interesting

review å Front Stoops in the Fifties 106 Front Stoops in the Fifties recounts the stories of some of Balti's most famous personalities as they grew up during the decade of conformity Such familiar names as Jerry Leiber Nancy Pelosi Thurgood Marshall and Barry Levinson figure prominently in Michael Olesker’s gripping account which draws on personal interviews and journalistic diggingOlesker marks the end of the fifties with the assassination of President John F Kennedy It’s as if millions will suddenly. Because I grew up in Balti I was surprised to find that in the first two pages I knew some of the people mentioned in the book I am of a child of the sixties rather than the fifties but I remembered a lot of the families profiled in this book Good local reading
