In this event, San Francisco State University Richard and Rhoda Goldman Chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility, Marc Dollinger, will discuss his latest book, Black Power, Jewish Politics: Reinventing the Alliance in the 1960s. Undermining widely-held beliefs about the black-Jewish alliance, Dollinger’s research describes a new political consensus, based on identity politics, that drew blacks and Jews together and altered the course of American liberalism. Immediately following Dollinger’s talk, USF JSSJ faculty, Professors Reggie Daniels and Shaina Hammerman, will have a conversation with Dollinger about the book and its wider implications in terms of Blacks and Jews.
This Swig Program in Jewish Studies and Social Justice event is co-sponsored by the Department of Theology and Religious Studies.
