Is There a Future for the Black-Jewish Alliance?

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

During the Civil Rights movement Blacks and Jews worked together to transform the country. Jews made up two-thirds of the whites who travelled south to join the Freedom Rides and helped register Blacks to vote. The murder of Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney—two young Jews and a young Black civil rights worker—symbolized the historic bonds between these two groups.

But these days, as both antisemitism and racism are on the rise, Blacks and Jews are often on opposite sides, clashing over Israel, affirmative action and other conflicts. Can this alliance be saved? And what do the tensions between Blacks and Jews mean for American politics, and for the future—and safety—of both groups.
