The Center for Jewish Studies and the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research are pleased to announce a talk series on the intersection of Black and Jewish identities in American culture, politics, and religious life. The lives and experiences of those who identify as Black and Jewish have received little scholarly attention despite their growing prominence in current conversations around race and religion in the US and outsized contributions to Jewish and American culture. This talk series aims to amplify Black and Jewish voices and to foster new conversations around the challenges and prospects of Black diversity and Jewish diversity.
