The crucial historical lessons of Black-Jewish relations are revisited and revived in this utterly fascinating, urgent call to action film. The modern alliance between African-Americans and Jewish Americans dates to the NAACP founding in 1909. Since then, both groups have endured segregation and racism, from the bigotry of southern Jim Crow laws, to blatant bias in real estate, employment, higher education and politics. 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 weakened in recent years. Pivotal events come alive through a treasure trove of archival materials, narrated by eyewitnesses, activists, Holocaust survivors, and leaders of the movement, including Congressman John Lewis, Rabbi Alvin Sugarman, Rabbi Peter S. Berg, Louis Gossett Jr., members of the King family, and many others. This potent, inspiring story of unity, empathy and partnership validates the ubiquity of the human experience, and how freedom and equality for all can be achieved only when people come together.
