Storytelling and folklore help us understand history, impart cultural values, and imbue us with wisdom. Join us for a conversation about the importance of folklore in both the Black and Jewish communities, from the golem and Anansi the Spider to Hip Hop and Jewish Jokes.
*Eric K. Ward, Civil Rights Strategist
*Nadine Epstein, Moment Editor-in-Chief

This program is part of The Wide River Project which takes a deep dive—and fresh look—into the art, history and issues that both unite and divide the Black and Jewish communities.
