Early in the 20th century black and Jewish Americans joined forces against bigotry and for civil rights but in the late 1960s each group turned inward and the coalition fell apart. This film examines the history of this collaboration and recent racial conflicts between Afro-Americans and Jews and attempts at understanding and reconciliation, with particular emphasis on events in New York City and Oakland, California. Includes Film Study Guide.
