Author, David Kushner pens a story about two families, one tycoon and the fight for civil rights in America's Legendary suburb.

"Levittown" is the story of the Leviit family, determined to sell homes and provide families with the American Dream. However, the Levitt dream had a whites only policy.

Kushner shares with readers the explosive weeks during the summer of 1957 when an African-American family buys into the American dream.
