From Swastika to Jim Crow — Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges in the American South
Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation
The film-and-discussion program tells the little-known story of German Jewish professors who, expelled from their homeland by the Nazis, found new lives and careers at all-black colleges and universities in the segregated American South. While most of these pairings between Jewish refugees and black colleges began as marriages of convenience, very often they blossomed into love matches that lasted a lifetime.
