VIRTUAL-MOSAIC: Virtual Lecture with Dr Devin Naar “Between Privilege and Peril”
October 25 @ 4:00 pm
Dr. Naar will explore a series of key moments in American Jewish
history from the 18th to 20th centuries that reveal the ways in
both Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews have simultaneously been
targets and beneficiaries of racism and discrimination. He will look
at how these dueling dynamics played out in relation to the
question of American citizenship in 1790, Emma Lazarus and her
famous 1883 poem “The New Colossus,” the lynching of Leo Frank
in 1915, and the passage of the Immigration Restriction Act in 1924.
