"The Price of Whiteness: Jews, Race, and American Identity"

What has it meant to be Jewish in a nation organized around the categories of "Black" and "White"? Are the descendants of European Jews in the United States a minority group or part of the privileged majority? This program will trace the complicated history of Jews' encounter with American racial culture from the beginning of mass Jewish immigration in the 19th century to the recent protest movements for racial justice.
