A conversation with Rabbi Judy Schindler of Temple Beth El and Johnson C. Smith University President Ronald Carter moderated by Jackie Fishman discussing the exhibit, “Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow.” The exhibit runs through Sept. 12 tells the compelling but little known story of Jewish professors who fled Nazi Germany during WWII, came to America and found teaching positions at historically black colleges and universities in the South. It explores the absurdities of a rigidly segregated Jim Crow society and the connection between the refugee scholars and their students.
