Synopsis: SHARED LEGACIES looks at the historic alliance between Blacks and Jews. It begins with the founding of the NAACP in 1909 and showcases the bigotry and segregation that both groups have faced. There are narrations and testimonies from Holocaust survivors, leaders, and advocates such as U.S. Rep. John Lewis, Rev. C.T. Vivian, Dr. Clarence B. Jones, actor/activist Harry Belafonte and daughter Gina Belafonte, Dr. Susannah Heschel, daughter of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, members of the King family, and many others. SHARED LEGACIES contends with issues of antisemitism and systemic racism that engulf us in the current national crisis and pursues the aspiration of Dr. King to create a coalition of conscience.
