Timeless Echoes: Jewish and African-American Comments on the Chinese Question
Join the 1882 Foundation and Dr. Gary Zola of the American Jewish Archives, Alan Spears of the National Parks Conservation Association, and Carolyn Chan of Chinese American Citizens Alliance in the second event of our Timeless Echoes series. The panelists will examine the historic intertwining of the Jewish, Black, and Chinese American communities, including Jewish comments and Frederick Douglass' writings on the issue of Chinese exclusion in the 19th century. Analyzing incidents of both tension and solidarity/integration, this event will discuss the implications of this complex history for our communities today, in light of the movement for racial justice.
