The Jewish-African American Connection
Jewish Americans stood beside their African American counterparts during the Civil Rights, and Voting Rights Movements in the 1960's. Filmmaker David Groubin captures the vibrant network of support in a series produced for Public Broadcasting entitled "The Jewish American."
Beyond their involvement in the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Movements, Dr. and Mrs. Sullivan Jackson were committed scholars. They strongly believed in the liberating powers of a quality education, an encouraged everyone to learn more about their history and culture. Their legacy lives on through The Sullivan and Richie Jean Sherrod Jackson Foundation and Museum, Inc. We have dedicated this page to providing quality educational resources to students of all disciplines and cultures.
