Virtual Civil Rights Tour
Participate in a virtual Civil Rights Tour and interactive discussion with an emphasis on the cities of Birmingham, Montgomery and Selma with T. Marie King. Moderated by Samantha Dubrinsky. 

Samantha Dubrinsky, 31, is a native of Birmingham, AL. Sam started her career as an intern at the Birmingham Jewish Federation and ascended to a senior-staff level before making a transition to the JCC arena. She is wrapping up her tenure as the Levite Jewish Community Center Executive Director in Birmingham, AL and will be starting as the CEO of the Springfield JCC in Springfield, MA on Feb. 1. 

During her time at the LJCC, Sam helped improve the organization's financial position, bringing more accountability and transparency; made significant changes in the LJCC’s staffing and operational structures; helped improve the professionalism and impact of every department; created innovative engagement experiences for members and the broader community, and formed unprecedented partnerships between the LJCC and many other community agencies.

While at the Federation, Sam made her mark in an array of areas — running the gamut from community relations to fundraising to leadership development. In addition, Jewish Federations of North America turned to her several times to represent the organization in national and international arenas. She was one of a small number of young professionals to receive a large JFNA scholarship to further her education and participate in Jewish enrichment experiences.

Sam graduated from Birmingham-Southern College in 2011 with a degree in history. Since that time, she completed a master’s degree in public administration and a master’s degree in business administration through Troy University. 

Sam, who is married to a Black Jewish man and is raising a biracial Jewish child, is deeply passionate about ensuring an equitable society for her own son and so many others. She is honored to be working with T. Marie King and the Tucson JCC on this important program.

Part of the Amplifying Voices Series on the Intersection of Black and Jewish Identities, in partnership with the Tucson JCC.
