Marc Dollinger
Richard and Rhoda Goldman Chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility, San Francisco State University
Location
Online
Date
Sunday January 29
Time
7-8:30 p.m. ET

When getting to know professor Marc Dollinger, you will discover that he believes, “It’s a scholar’s obligation (and privilege) to ‘complicate the narrative and deepen learning’... Whatever you learned growing up about Jews and social justice, it’s my job to turn it on its head…and convince you to think about things in new, different, and exciting ways.”
In his latest book, Black Power, Jewish Politics, Dollinger takes a brand-new look at the history of the black-Jewish alliance in the 1950s and 1960s to investigate what happened after the civil rights movement in the mid-1960s and 1970s when the Black-Jewish alliance broke-up.

This talk is presented jointly by CWRU’s Siegal Lifelong Learning Program and the Maltz Museum.
