Marc Dollinger, "1619, 1624, and 2020: Jews, Racism, and U.S. History"

Back by popular demand, Marc Dollinger, PhD (Professor of Jewish Studies, San Francisco State University) joins us to talk about "Jews, Racism, and U.S. History."  With protests gripping the nation, so many American Jews are reflecting on systemic racism and ways we may be able to help. Join us for a candid, and probably difficult, journey through American Jewish history as we explore historical documents about Jews and racism. We will think about what is means to “become American” and the ways that racism has played among and within the Jewish community.  Dollinger is the author of Black Power, Jewish Politics: Reinventing the Alliance in the 1960s (Brandeis University Press, 2018) and Quest for Inclusion: Jews and Liberalism in Modern America (Princeton University Press, 2000).
