Johanna Fernandez, assistant professor, at Baruch College, teaches twentieth-century US history and the history of social movements. As a result of her Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) lawsuit against the NYPD, “lost” Handschu files—the police surveillance records numbering over one million—compiled by the NYPD between 1954-1972, are now available to scholars and members of the public. She is also editor of Writing on the Wall: Selected Prison Writings of Mumia Abu-Jamal.
