Documentary Film Screening: Blacks and Jews: The Psychology of Victimization and Media Exploration
February 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Release Date: 1997
Scholars and critics probe the history and psychology of victimization shared between Blacks and Jews and their exploitation by the media.
The faultline between Blacks and Jews is one of the most visible symbols of America’s racial divide. This film, made collaboratively by Jewish and Black filmmakers, goes behind the headlines and the rhetoric to try to heal the misunderstanding and mistrust. Blacks & Jews was acclaimed at the Sundance Film Festival for initiating a frank yet constructive nationwide dialogue between these two traditional allies.
This film screening will compliment the upcoming program “African-Americans and American Jews: Partners in Social Justice, Spirituality & Song,” being presented by the Congregation Etz Chaim Cabaret Ensemble on Sunday, February 23 at 1:30pm.
