Shared Legacies is presented collaboratively by the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, the Jewish Museum, and Film at Lincoln Center. The JCC's Cinematters: NY Social Justice FIlm Festival takes place January 14-18, 2021. The Jewish Museum and Film at Lincoln Center's annual New York Jewish Film Festival takes place January 13-26, 2021.   

The crucial historical lessons of Black-Jewish cooperation are revisited and revived in this utterly fascinating and urgent call to action. Common cause was found in the turbulent ‘60s Civil Rights era, as Jewish leaders backed Dr. King’s efforts at racial equality and harmony. Yet, the relationship has frayed in recent years, as a once mighty bond of support and respect has seemingly faded, been forgotten or ignored.
