Fordham Conversations
Tapping into the Fordham University community to discuss and uncover issues that impact our world locally and beyond.
Allen Jones grew up in the projects in one of the nation's most famously tough neighborhoods, dealt drugs, went to prison, went to prep school, and played European pro basketball...and now he's a banker in Luxembourg. His memoir, co-written with Fordham professor Mark Naison, is forthcoming from Fordham University Press--we talk with Naison about Jones' strange life trajectory, the early day's of NYC public housing, and the massive importance of schoolyard basketball.
