Date Wed, Jul 1, 8:30am - 9:00am
Duration   30m

As news of the rising Nazi threat reached Americans in the 1930s, the United States was struggling with racism, antisemitism, and anti-immigrant biases. In response, some religious leaders, members of the Black press, and other bold Americans gathered momentum to condemn Nazi persecution in Europe and racial discrimination in the United States.

Join historians from the museum and George Mason University to learn about the leaders who confronted hatred overseas and at home while planting the seeds for the American civil rights movement.

Dr. Charles L. Chavis, Assistant Professor, Conflict Analysis, Resolution, and History, George Mason University

Dr. Edna Friedberg, Historian, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
