A documentary film, based on the book"Beyond Swastica and Jim Crow", by Gabrielle Simon Edgcomb, presenting the unknown story of Jewish academics who came to America in the 1930s as refugees and found homes, work, and community in the south at historically black colleges.
This film explores the similarities between segregated, racist Nazi Germany and the segregation and racism they found in the south, USA, with actual interviews of former African-American students, and Jewish professors, or their grown children. The film was produced in 2000. Running time - 60 minutes. Discussion to follow.
