The Wide River Project: The Importance of Storytelling in the Black and Jewish Communities
Hosted By: Moment Magazine
Storytelling and folklore help us understand history, impart cultural values, and imbue us with wisdom. Join Civil Rights Strategist Eric K. Ward, Moment Editor-in-Chief Nadine Epstein, Screenwriter Adam Mansbach, author of The Golem of Brooklyn, and Assistant Professor of Folklore and African American Studies Langston Collin Wilkins, author of Welcome to Houston: Hip Hop Heritage in Hustle Town, for a conversation about the importance of folklore in both the Black and Jewish communities from the golem to Anansi the Spider. This program is part of The Wide River Project which takes a deep dive—and fresh look—into the art, history and issues that both unite and divide the Black and Jewish communities.
