Shared Dreams: Martin Luther King, Jr. & the Jewish Community
Many people are familiar with the story of Jewish support for the American civil rights movement, but this history has another side—
one that has not been fully told until now.
“Outlines a compelling image of relations between the two communities…. In Shared Dreams, Rabbi Schneier reiterates our commonality, as upheld by Martin Luther King, Jr., and fuels the reader to continue to work for the advancement of race relations among all God’s children.”
—from the Preface by Martin Luther King III
Shared Dreams brings to life the impressive, surprising, and long-neglected history of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s efforts in support of the Jewish community. This is a story that sheds new light on the commitment and the relationship between the Jewish and African-American communities as they have struggled together to fight for justice and civil rights in our nation, and our lives.
