Book Talk: Beyond “The Almost Promised Land”

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

The evolution of a civil rights movement advocating for power and community action. The midpoint of a grassroots human rights movement on behalf of persecuted Jewry. The rise of a conservative establishment working to reverse the progressive gains of previous decades.

It was in this moment that in 1977 Hasia Diner published a seminal work of scholarship—In the Almost Promised Land: American Jews and Blacks, 1915-1935, an incisive look at the forces behind two decades of Jewish advocacy on behalf of Black citizens of the United States. This two-part interview reflects back on this influential work illuminating critical themes that shape how we advance racial justice today. Part one is Wednesday, November 10; part two is Wednesday, November 17, both at 7 PM.

Join the Museum and the Worker’s Circle for this conversation between Hasia Diner and writer and Yiddish performer Anthony Mordechai Tzvi Russell.
