Occupying Judaism: From Black Power to Jewish Radicalism, with Michael Staub

Was Jewish student activism of the late sixties adaptation—even imitation—of Black Pride for a Jewish context? Join us in revisiting this powerful period of the 1960s in Jewish, Black, and American life.

Michael E. Staub is a Professor of English at CUNY. His teaching and scholarly interests include modern and contemporary literature, American cultural and intellectual history, documentary and nonfiction writing, American ethnic and minority literature, and Jewish and Holocaust studies. He is the author of Voices of Persuasion: Politics of Representation in 1930s America, Torn at the Roots: The Crisis of Jewish Liberalism in Postwar America, The Jewish 1960s: An American Sourcebook, and Love My Rifle More Than You: Young and Female in the U.S. Army, which recounted the first-person experiences of Sergeant Kayla Williams, who served as an Arabic linguist in Iraq during the Second Gulf War.

The cultural program and pot-luck desert follow Shabbat services. Childcare provided for children 11 and younger.

All are welcome at this free event.

RSVP Appreciated, but not required
