Jane Gordon, Institute for the Study of Race and Social Thought and the Center for Afro-Jewish Studies., 08/24/2006

Cheryl Lynn Greenberg, in Troubling the Waters: Black-Jewish Relations in the American Century, reopens the question of whether there was a “golden age” of cooperation between Black and Jewish groups from the 1940s-1960s. And more interestingly, she asks whether the subsequent decline and disrepair of that partnership is permanent.
