Looking Back at Jews and the Civil Rights Movement with Dr. Jason Schulman

Part of our series “The ‘Other’ in Jewish Text and Tradition”

April 5, 2021, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET

The story of how Jews were key allies to African Americans in the Civil Rights Movement is well known. But when historical narratives become conventional wisdom, it can lead to stagnation. Now, many are asking when it comes to Black-Jewish relations, where do we go from here? In this session, led by Dr. Jason Schulman, we will look back at the story of Jews and the Civil Rights Movement to explore some new directions for the study of the field and new bases for honest dialogue. 


Dr. Jason Schulman is an adjunct instructor.
