Jews and Blacks in the Civic Rights Era and Now Midrash and Fact
November 22, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm| Free
Explore the reality of the relationship between the Jewish and Black communities during the Civil Rights era. The Jewish narrative of that era is not completely seen the same by everyone or grounded in the reality of what was truly happening. We were participants in the Civil Rights movement but it is not our story. Explore some historical events that impacted Jews in America including the Leo Frank and Temple bombing in Atlanta to the sociological and generational issues that shaped Jewish activism and participation, or lack of, on both sides of the movement. Also, how does all of this impact what is happening in the streets of America today?
These sessions are free of charge and open to the public.
