This documentary explores the history of the Black-Jewish alliance in America and revisits the points in history when Black and Jewish American s both faced hardships due to segregation and racism. The film begins with the founding of the NAACP and concludes with an examination of modern-day race relations. With its impressive array of storytellers and archival footage, the film explores the normalized bigotry of the Jim Crow South, the North’s rampant bias in the areas of housing, employment, and education, and the civil rights era initiatives that brought Black and Jewish leaders together to support Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision for a more just and equitable world.
