This presentation, facilitated by Dr. Lillie Edwards, broadens understanding of the film previously presented, From Swastika to Jim Crow, on September 17th.

This film tells the story of German-Jewish refugee scholars, who, expelled from their German universities by Hitler and the Nazis, found positions at Historically Black Colleges and universities in the American South. Dr. Edwards’s lecture will explore the international, national, institutional, and personal histories that connected Jewish refugee scholars and their families to Black college students, faculty, and communities; racial segregation and violence; as well as antisemitism in the U.S. and Europe.
