Jews, Race and Justice in
the Age of Obama   

Jews overwhelmingly — more than 80% — supported the candidacy of the first black president of the United States and made a sea change in American political reality.

These are some of the questions that will be explored in a discussion with writer, civil rights activist and Jew of Color Eric Greene.

Eric Greene is the Senior Policy Advisor to the Executive Director of the ACLU of Southern California. He is the author of the critically acclaimed American cultural history, Planet of the Apes as American Myth: Race, Politics and Popular Culture (Wesleyan, 1998).

Greene is a graduate of Stanford Law School, where he served as vice president of the Black Law Students Association. As a student of classical Jewish texts he has studied at Machon Pardes and Yaakar in Jerusalem. He is currently a member of the Los Angeles Regional Board of the Progressive Jewsih Alliance (PJA), and has served as vice-president of the full PJA board.
