Jews and the American Civil Rights Movement and Beyond

Prof. Eli Lederhendler

In this series we analyze how race became American society’s most pressing domestic issue in the postwar decades, how Jews in America were affected by this trend, and whether Jews can be considered an influential party to that national debate. Did the legacy of the civil rights struggle have special meaning for Jews? How can we account for the “disappearing Jew” in the identity politics of the post-sixties years?
