Shared Legacies: The African-American Jewish Civil Rights Alliance

Please join us for a special Black History Month Interfaith community program 

The Black and Jewish communities have had a powerful alliance dating back to well before the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Jewish leaders marched arm in arm with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., backing efforts at racial equality and harmony.

The film Shared Legacies: The African-American Jewish Civil Rights Alliance tells this powerful story and is available free of charge for viewing at home Friday, February 19—Monday, February 22. The film link will be sent upon registration.
