Short: Jews for Black Lives with Shoshana Brown

 

While the Institutional Jewish Community condemned the Movement for Black Lives this month, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice organized weekly ‘Jews for Black Lives’ actions across New York City. David spoke with Shoshana Brown, an organizer with JFREJ’s Jews of Color Caucus, about these actions as well as the fraught media discourse surrounding the Movement for Black Lives platform.

We then played a segment produced by WBAI reporter Mitchel Cohen, documenting the August 11th Jews for Black Lives march that culminated in the arrest of seven Jews of Color.
