1619, 1654, 2022: Jews, Race and U.S. History

September 19 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Dr. Marc Dollinger, who holds the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Endowed Chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility at San Francisco State University, will explore historical documents about Jews and racism to consider how racism has informed what is means to “become American” over time and place.

The talk is being held in conjunction with the exhibit “Black + Jewish: Connection, Courage, Community” from the Kennesaw State University (GA) Museum of History and Holocaust Education on display at The Jewish Center of Princeton from September 17 – October 31, 2022.  The exhibit panels document events from African American and Jewish American history. A jar of soil from the one documented lynching site in New Jersey will also be on display during those dates.
