The CSZ Equity Task Force and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) invite you to join online with others across the country to view the film Shared Legacies: The African American Jewish Civil Rights Alliance. The crucial historical lessons of Black-Jewish cooperation are revisited and revived in the utterly fascinating, urgent call to action. With divisive seeds of hate taking root anew in the American landscape, this potent, inspiring story of unity, empathy and partnership validates the ubiquity of the human experience, and how freedom and equality for all can be achieved only when people come together.

Following the film, participate in the talk-back with panelists Hon. Andrew Young, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations; Sherry Frank, founder of Black Jewish Coalition of Atlanta; Shari Rogers, Director/Writer/Producer of Shared Legacies: The African American Jewish Civil Rights Alliance; Yolanda Savage-Narva, Director, Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Union for Reform Judaism.
