Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow

The Holocaust Memorial Center and Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History have partnered on a series called Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow. The two part series explores the unlikely coming together of these two groups, each the object of exclusion and hatred, and examines the ongoing encounter between them as they navigated the challenges of life in the segregated South. Stephen Goldman is the Executive Director of the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills. He spoke to WDET’s Martina Guzman about the development of the relationship between African Americans and Jews.
