The Alliance between African Americans and Jews
Join us for this special viewing of Shared Legacies: The African American-Jewish Civil Rights Alliance. The crucial historical lessons of Black-Jewish cooperation are revisited and revived in this fascinating, urgent call to action. The modern alliance between African-Americans and Jewish Americans dates to the NAACP founding in 1909. Since then, both groups have endured segregation and racism, from the codified bigotry of southern Jim Crow laws, to blatant bias in real estate, employment, higher education and politics. Register and receive the link to watch the film for an exclusive 48-hour period on the morning of Monday, June 29th through midnight Tuesday, June 30th.
