Race, Rhetoric and Reason

By Leonard Fein

American Jewish Congress, 1968

Leonard Fein delivers a speech to the American Jewish Congresses Golden Jubilee on the challenges of race relations in America. Fein discusses the need to understand that the progress that progressive whites had seen was illusory to many Black Americans. By the same token, the genocidal rhetoric of Black Americans was “verbal overkill, so utterly apocalyptic” as to lose meaning. Finding some middle ground might help move American race relations forward.
