Recent flashpoints in Black-Jewish relations-Louis Farrakhan's Million Man March, the violence in Crown Heights, Leonard Jeffries' polemical speeches, the O.J. Simpson verdict, and the contentious responses to these events-suggest just how wide the gap has become in the fragile coalition that was formed during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. Instead of critical dialogue and respectful exchange, we have witnessed battles that too often consist of vulgar name-calling and self-righteous finger-pointing. Absent from these exchanges are two vitally important and potentially healing elements: Comprehension of the actual history between Blacks and Jews, and level-headed discussion of the many issues that currently divide the two groups. In Struggles in the Promised Land, editors Jack Salzman and Cornel West bring together twenty-one illuminating essays that fill precisely this absence. As Salzman makes clear in his introduction, the purpose of this collection is not to offer quick fixes to the present crisis but to provide a clarifying historical framework from which lasting solutions may emerge.
Jack Salzman, former Director of the Center for American Culture Studies, Columbia University, is Head of Media and Special Programs, TheJewish Museum. He is the editor of Bridges and Boundaries: African Americans and American Jews and, with Cornel West, Encyclopedia of African American Culture And History. Cornel West is Professor of Philosophy of Religion and Afro-American Studies at Harvard. His books include
Race Matters and Jews and Blacks: Let the Healing Begin.
