This account illuminates a rich and complex chapter of Black and Jewish relations in American history. Panelists include KU Professors Ari Linden (German Studies), Fithawee Tzeggai (Sociology), as well as Shelia Bonner (Andrew Mellon Visiting Scholar, Margaret Walker Center, Jackson State University). Lorie Vanchena (Director, Max Kade Center) will moderate. Participants are encouraged to watch the documentary beforehand.
