Jews and Blacks in the Civil Rights Era and Now: Midrash and Fact

January 11, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Explore the reality of the relationship between the Jewish and Black communities during the Civil Rights era. Why were there Jews on both sides, and the sidelines, of the Civil Rights movement? What was the role of Judaism in the activism of young people in the 1960s? What are the implications for the streets of America today? Join Billy Planer, director of Etgar 36, to explore these questions and examine where we go next as a community.
