Bridging the Black Jewish Divide: A Dialogue

7:00PM - 9:00PM  

Contact Chaz Goodman

At a time when white supremacy is on the rise, hate speech has become normalized, and hate crimes against Blacks and Jews have reached an all-time high, we will examine the complex history of Blacks and Jews in the United States and explore current day issues that serve as roadblocks to deep, trusting relationships. Professors Berlinblau and Johnson, authors of Blacks and Jews in America: An Invitation to Dialogue will unpack the myths, misconceptions, and shared history of these two minority groups and model effective dialogue that creates a foundation for understanding and allyship.
