SHARED LEGACIES: The African-American Jewish Civil Rights Alliance, Dir. Dr. Shari Rogers, Documentary, 2020, United States, 95 min

Boston Premier

The historical ties between Black and Jewish Americans began long before the Civil Rights era. Shared Legacies explores this significant alliance, sharing eyewitness accounts, interviews with civil rights leaders, including U.S. Rep. John Lewis, and a treasure trove of archival footage. The film is a tribute to the pursuit of what Dr. King called a “coalition of conscience” and a celebration of partnership, as well as an urgent call to action for today.
