Black and Jewish communities in the United States have a long history of partnership in the fight for civil rights, and Los Angeles has its own unique history of biracial political cooperation. But even in the pursuit of common goals, no alliance is without its challenges. Los Angeles community leaders will discuss the history of Black and Jewish relationships in Los Angeles and how communities can work together to fight bias and prejudice to create a more dignified world.
