From the 1930s to the rise of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, From Swastika to Jim Crow is a mesmerizing chronicle of Jim Crow America and a profoundly moving tale of two seemingly different groups – the formal, heavily accented European scholars and their young, Southern Black students – who enriched each other’s lives in ways still being felt today. That refugees from Nazi Germany were welcomed by historically black colleges remains an inspirational story for the 21st century.
This event is free and open to the public.
