A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of talking with Rabbi Everett Gendler and Ambassador Andrew Young. They first met in Albany, Georgia, in August 1962, when Rabbi Gendler participated in an interracial prayer vigil. In the interview, they discuss a variety of topics, including the relationship between the Black and Jewish communities during the civil rights movement. You can view the interview here:

I hope you enjoy it.
