African American Jewish Identity and the Jewish Community
In honor of Jewish American Heritage Month MoAD presents a lecture by Dr. Jamie Wilson.
Dr. Jamie Wilson will explore what it means to be both Black and Jewish. He is partnering with Be'chol Lashon to research African American Jews in the context of the global Jewish community.
His upcoming book, Black and Jewish: African American Jewish Identities in the Early Twenty-First Century, will be a collection of autobiographical narratives that will give voice to those who stand at the intersection of African American and Jewish communities, documenting the history and traditions of Jews of African descent in the United States.
May 22, 2010 from 2:00pm - 3:30pm
