Jews in the U.S. Racial Landscape
Join the Herbert D. Katz Center for the "Critical Race Studies" Series. RSVP is required for each virtual session.
What does it mean that Jews can be both white and victims of white supremacy? And how do Jews fit into a US racial landscape, especially given the reality of Jews as a multi-racial group? This talk explores two moments in US history - the early 1900s and today - to analyze the relationship of Jews and race.
