dsc0801-version-2Molly Dubin, curator at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee, will speak on Jews and Blacks in our society. The talk, which is free and open to the public, is based on the museum’s exhibit last spring entitled Allied in the Fight: Jews, Blacks and the Struggle for Civil Rights.

Developed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Milwaukee’s historic 1967 and 1968 open housing marches, the exhibit recounted the efforts made by Jewish and African American leaders, organizations, movements and community members in fighting for fundamental human rights before and during the Civil Rights era.

Dubin will explore the resonant themes addressed in the exhibit, and highlight historical events and meaningful instances of mutual advocacy.
