A film screening of "Shared Legacies: The African American-Jewish Civil Rights Alliance," followed by a panel discussion. 

Spill the Honey Foundation provides a forum for discussion and a space to showcase Black-Jewish relations through Shared Legacies: The African American-Jewish Civil Rights Alliance. Crucial historical lessons of Black-Jewish cooperation are revisited and revived in this utterly fascinating, urgent call to action. Pivotal events come alive through a treasure trove of archival materials, narrated by eyewitnesses, activists, Holocaust survivors, and leaders of the movement, including Congressman John Lewis, Ambassador Andrew Young, Senator Rapheal Warnock, King's attorney Dr. Clarence B. Jones, Oscar-winning actor Louis Gossett Jr., members of the King family, and many others.

The dialogue is dedicated to Dillard University President Emeritus Samuel DuBois Cook, friend and college classmate of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and founder of the National Center for Black-Jewish Relations.

Panelists: Dr. Rochelle Ford (President, Dillard University), Dr. Shari Rogers (Film Director,
Shared Legacies), Dr. Clarence B. Jones (Attorney and Speechwriter for Martin Luther King, Jr.)

Moderators: Wendell Shelby-Wallace (Special Advisor, Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs), Blake Weissman (National Youth President, Spill the Hone Foundation)

Sponsor: The Center for Jewish-Multicultural Affairs is sponsored by the Goldring Family Foundation.
