Was there ever really a Black-Jewish alliance in 20th century America? And if there was, what happened to it? In this lecture based on her book, "Troubling the Waters: Black Jewish Relations in the American Century," Cheryl Greenberg answers these questions more definitively than they have ever been answered before, drawing the richest portrait yet of what was less an alliance than a tumultuous political engagement—but one that energized the civil rights revolution, shaped the agenda of liberalism, and affected the course of American politics as a whole.
