Hamans and Torquemadas: Southern and Northern Responses to the Civil Rights Movement, 1954-1964

Join us, as we explore a new understanding of American Jewish participation in the modern civil rights movement. Starting in the South, we’ll examine how and why southern Jews took differing approaches to racial justice work. Then, we’ll turn to the North, only to find some surprising similarities between the regions. What inspired Jewish participation in social justice causes? What possibilities and limits did it create? Prepare yourself for new ways of thinking.
