* Mark Bray identifies Yesenia Barragan, who is also a professor of history at Dartmouth and also an activist, as his “partner.”
* On September 24, 2017, Bray came to the defense of Professor Michael Isaacson of John Jay College of Criminal Justice (in New York), who was under fire for having made a number of controversial comments articulating his desire to see police officers murdered. Inside a copy of his own 2017 book, Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, Bray wrote a personal message to Isaacson that read: “Stand tall comrade! Don’t let the bastards grind you down. Let’s keep in touch.”
* Bray’s 2017 book tour across the U.S. included a joint appearance in Philadelphia with another controversial professor, George Ciccariello-Maher.
