Dialogues & Divergences: the Ongoing Evolution of Black-Jewish Relations in America

February 20, 2013 7:00 PM-9:00 PM

Presented with the African American Museum in Philadelphia and the Jewish Studies Program at the University of Pennsylvania

Sara Lomax-Reese, President and General Manager of WURD Radio in Philadelphia, moderates a conversation between Cheryl Lynn Greenberg and John L. Jackson, Jr. as they navigate the complexities of historic and contemporary Black-Jewish relations in America.

Dr. Greenberg is the Paul E. Raether Distinguished Professor of History at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, and the award-winning author of numerous articles and books, including “Or Does it Explode?" Black Harlem in the Great Depression, Troubling the Waters: Black-Jewish Relations in the American Century, and the editor of A Circle of Trust: Remembering SNCC.

Dr. Jackson is the Richard Perry University Professor of Communication and Anthropology, Senior Advisor to the Provost on Diversity, and the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication and School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania. His work focuses on ethnography and media, and he is currently doing fieldwork with Black Jews in the US and Israel. He is the author of three books and numerous articles.


This discussion represents the third installment of a biannual public forum sponsored jointly by Penn and NMAJH, with generous support from the Arlene and Stanley Ginsburg Family Foundation, which aims to connect the Jewish experience narrated in the Museum’s core exhibition with larger themes in American history and culture.

In conjunction with the special exhibition Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges
