MLK Day Movie - BLACKS AND JEWS

Documentary • USA • 85 minutes
This documentary attempts to go beyond the sensationalized media coverage and the stereotypes to examine several key conflicts from the point of view of both Black and Jewish activists. Grounded in realism, Blacks and Jews offers no easy answers. Instead, it raises some provocative questions and underscores the vital importance of open-minded discussion in an ongoing effort to resolve conflicts and promote problem solving.
A watching guide and Q&A period will accompany the film.
