FilmFest: Shared Legacies

Date: October 20, 2020Time: 12:00 pm

Shared Legacies

An in-depth look at the historic alliance between African Americans and Jewish Americans, beginning with the founding of the NAACP in 1909, when Jews, Gentiles, and Black Americans initiated a “new abolitionist movement,” and concluding with an examination of modern-day race relations. Through an impressive array of storytellers and archival footage, the film explores the normalized bigotry of the Jim Crow South, the North’s rampant bias in housing, employment and education, and the civil rights era initiatives that brought Black and Jewish leaders together to support Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision for a more just and equitable world.

Fee: $15
