The reviews are starting to come out about our new exhibition Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges. While we have been excited for some time now, it is refreshing to hear the great things that critics, visitors, and students have all been saying. If you didn't catch the NY1 segment over the weekend, click here to watch it.
Here is another added incentive to come visit this weekend. On Sunday at 1 P.M., the Museum will present From Swastika to Jim Crow. This film, which aired on PBS in 2000, illustrates the bonds created between Jewish refugee scholars and their students at historically black colleges. It served as inspiration for the exhibition. Screening is free with Museum admission.
