About the Film:  The crucial historical lessons of Black-Jewish cooperation are revisited in this fascinating documentary. Common cause was found in the turbulent ‘60s Civil Rights era, as Jewish leaders backed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s efforts for racial equality and harmony. Pivotal events come alive through archival footage, narrated by eyewitnesses, activists, and leaders of the movement, including Congressman John Lewis, Senator Raphael Warnock, Rabbi Alvin Sugarman, Rabbi Peter S. Berg, Oscar-winning actor Louis Gossett Jr., members of the King family, and many others. Recommended for viewers in grades 8 and up, due to images of racial violence.
