|Eugene F. Rivers, 3d||On The Responsibility of Intellectuals in the Age of Crack 17.5|
Immediately addressed to the Boston/Cambridge intellectual community, Rivres' letter speaks at the same time to a much broader audience: in fact, to anyone interested in the fate of the urban poor in the United States. A pastor and social analyst, Rivers works every day with poor women and children in Boston's Dorchester and Roxbury neighborhoods. In their name, he asks us to reflect on the moral meaning of intellectual life.

According to Genovese, liberals are hostile to religion, community, and traditional morality, and that hostility now stands in the way of racial justice.
