Children of Activism: Jewish Fighters in the Anti-Apartheid and Civil Rights Movements

July 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

MSJE is partnering with the South African Jewish Museum to share a conversation about how Jewish activists helped change systems built to oppress Black communities in the American South and Apartheid South Africa.

The virtual event will feature two sons exploring the legacies of their activist fathers: Nic Wolpe, the son of Harold Wolpe, a prominent South African anti-apartheid advocate who fought alongside Nelson Mandela, and was arrested and lived in exile for thirty years; and Michael Botnick, the son of A. I. Botnick, a high-profile Civil Rights activist in New Orleans who escaped an assassination attempt while serving as regional director of the ADL.

This free, virtual event will be streamed live simultaneously in the US and South Africa.
