Going South: Jewish Women in the Civil Rights Movement

A Compelling Story Of Jewish Women Fighting Racism While Coming Of Age In The Shadow Of The Holocaust Organized around a rich blend of oral histories, Going South follows a group of Jewish women who put their bodies and lives on the line to fight racism. Actively rejecting the post-war idyll of suburban, Jewish, middle-class life, these women were deeply influenced by Jewish notions of morality and social justice. Thus, many perceived the call of the civil rights movement as positively irresistible.
