Back in Time to 1909: The Black Jewish Relationship and The Founding of the NAACP
Hosted By: Moment Magazine
After a deadly riot in Springfield, Illinois, Jewish leaders joined with African American leaders to address racial injustice. W.E.B. Du Bois, Ida B. Wells, Henry Moskowitz, Rabbi Emil Hirsch, Rabbi Stephen Samuel Wise, Lillian Wald and others came together to found the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), launching a historic chapter in the fight for civil rights. Dr. Lillie J. Edwards, Professor Emerita of History and African American studies at Drew University will discuss what was going on in 1909, the importance of this Black-Jewish coalition, and how the Black and Jewish communities can continue to work together to counter racism. This Wide River Conversation is hosted by Moment editor-in-chief Nadine Epstein.
