Gale Family Foundation Fall 2021 Lecture: "The ties that bind us: African Americans and Jews in America and our Shared Future" by Dr. Anthea Butler


The history of the Civil Rights movement and the partnership between Blacks and Jews has been one of shared discrimination and struggles. Since the 1960's there has been a fracturing in this religious, political, and social association. Mixing a combination of local, state, and national history, Professor Butler's talk will explore the history, myth, and challenges to the relationship between these two communities from a religious and political perspective

Anthea Butler is the Geraldine R. Segal Professor of American Social Thought and Chair of Religion and Professor of Religious Studies and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Her new book White Evangelical Racism: The Politics of Morality in America, was published in March 2021 on Ferris and Ferris, a division of UNC Press.
