Date(s) - Monday, January 21st
11:45 am - 1:30 pm
Jewish Museum Milwaukee
Join curator Molly Dubin as she presents on this past spring’s exhibit, Allied in the Fight: Jews, Blacks and the Struggle for Civil Rights.
The exhibit recounted the efforts made by Jewish and African American leaders, organizations, and community members in fighting for fundamental human rights before and during the Civil Rights era. They joined together in pursuit of equality and in combating prejudice and discrimination. Despite the relationship’s complexities, African American and Jewish communities became allied against injustice.
Through national and local lenses the exhibit provided context for the historical and evolutionary relationships of these communities.
Free and open to the public.
Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Coffee will be provided.
Offered in connection with MKE Museum Week, January 21 – 27. For more information about Milwaukee Museum Week or to see the many events scheduled throughout the week, visit MKEMuseumWeek.org.
