Blacks & Jews

During the civil rights movement, African Americans and Jews fought together for equal rights. But differences in economic status eventually led to divisive positions on issues such as affirmative action in education, Louis Farrakhan's philosophies, and even a perceived Jewish influence in Hollywood. In this program, scholars and critics probe the history and psychology of the social marginalization shared by blacks and Jews. Key conflicts, such as New York's Crown Heights riots and the blockbusting in Chicago that pitted Jewish homeowners against black home buyers, are examined from the perspectives of activists on both sides. With Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Cornel West, and others.
