Black Power, Jewish Politics: Reinventing the Alliance in The 1960s

7:00PM - 8:00PM  


Contact Yaron Ayalon

Dr. Marc Dollinger, Richard and Rhoda Goldman Chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility, San Francisco State University.

Description: In his recent book, Prof. Dollinger takes a new look at Jewish involvement in the civil rights movement, showing how American Jews leveraged the Black Power movement to increase Jewish ethnic and religious identity in the late 1960s and early 1970s. His talk will explore historical documents that reveal a fascinating and surprising Jewish past, one that is very relevant with the recent interest in Black Lives Matter and larger questions of race and justice.
