Stories of New York: City College | Part I - The "Jewish Harvard" and a World of Ideas
Center for Jewish History
New York, NY
Share this event:

A special series about City College:
February 2, February 11, March 16

Its dazzling list of alumni includes playwrights and poets, politicians and journalists, scientists, teachers, and Nobel Prize winners. The City College of New York was established to provide children of working class and immigrant families access to a tuition-free higher education, based on merit alone. For many years, its student body was predominantly Jewish and for most it was City College or nothing at a time when quotas and cost kept Jews out of more prestigious institutions. Join historians, writers, filmmakers, and alumni for a series of discussions and films about City College, its rich Jewish history, and its transformative role in the lives of so many.
