Given current tensions, it’s easy to forget the long history of Black and Jewish communities working together in the pursuit of justice. With the rise of racism and antisemitism, it’s more important than ever to begin repairing Black-Jewish relations. Join Dr. Rochelle L. Ford, President of Dillard University in New Orleans, for a conversation about why she made the decision to revitalize the university’s National Center for Black-Jewish Relations which was first founded in 1989 and how the two communities can build relationships to fight hate. Dr. Ford was recently a speaker at the March for Israel in Washington, DC where thousands rallied in support of Israel, for the release of the hostages, and against antisemitism. This program is in honor of MLK, Jr. Day, which is the day prior.
