Negro and Jew: A "Special Relationship"

By Leonard Fein

November 1968

The late 1960s presented a difficult time for liberal American Jews as anti-black racism began to appear in Jewish communities, and antisemitism became more common in black America. Fein discusses the unique relationship between American Blacks and American Jews, and the importance of learning and understanding the differences between integration and assimilation in the separate cases. Only be understanding the profound differences can the two groups learn from each other and based on common purpose teach America what pluralism is all about.
