Wandering Dixie with Sue Eisenfeld
August 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Sue Eisenfeld is a Yankee by birth (Philadelphia) and a Virginian by choice, an urbanite who came to appreciate the rural South while understanding the need to interrogate its complexities. In “Wandering Dixie: Dispatches from the Lost Jewish South,” she travels to nine states, uncovering how the history of Jewish southerners converges with the region’s complex, conflicted present. Learning how Southern Jews benefited from slavery and escaped some discrimination by not being on the lowest rung of society’s ladder, she finds herself on an African-American history journey as well, investigating the unexpected ways that race, religion, and hidden histories intertwine.
