From Swastika to Jim Crow – Film, Talkback, & Tour

This documentary tells the little-known story of Jewish refugee scholars who escaped Nazi persecution by fleeing to America, and when faced with anti-Semitic sentiment at mainstream American universities, were hired for positions at historically black colleges and universities in the then-segregated South.

Dr. Fran Kaplan, who recently retired from her work at America’s Black Holocaust Museum, will facilitate a talkback session. Afterwards, we’ll have a private tour of the Allied in the Fight: Jews, Blacks and the Struggle for Civil Rights exhibit.

Presenter: Dr. Fran Kaplan.
$10 members & non-members.
Held at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee.
1360 N Prospect Ave (2 blocks east of the church).

Registration deadline: March 11. Sign up on Sundays at the Religious Education Table, or print off a registration form to mail in with your payment.
