Black-Jewish Unity Week


As part of a weeklong national initiative in September 2020, the American Jewish Committee and the National Urban League united against surging levels of antisemitism and racism. Immerse yourself in the complexities of these modern issues through a diversity of voices and roles in the forces opposing bigotry today. Through three webinar recordings, educators can learn of the historical relationship between Jews and African-Americans, the similarities and dissimilarities of their plights, and the power of the two peoples partnering together against hatred.

Educators may present pieces of the webinars in class as a springboard for discussion, or use them for his/her own edification and development of curricula.
