Contrition, Forgiveness: Jesse Jackson, the man Jews love to hate

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 1992

Jesse Jackson's relationship to the Jews of America is complicated, the scars of ''Hymietown'' and Farrakhan and Crown Heights are still raw, and there are some who will never forgive Jackson for his missteps. But his speech to the World Jewish Conference on Antisemitism reveals a man who speaks from both head and heart, and who may carry legacies of distrust, but is trying to bridge a gap between two communities that used to be steadfast allies in the fight for rights and equality.

Topic: Black-Jewish Relations, Antisemitism, Forgiveness and Reconciliation, Discourse and Dialogue
