Made possible by the Stanley R. Epstein Fund at the Yiddish Book Center.|
Over the past decade, Anthony Russells beginnings as a performer of Yiddish song have evolved in a number of unexpected directions: the writing and performance of new Yiddish songs with Dmitri Gaskin of Tsvey Brider; his ongoing development of a creative idiom termed Black Yiddishkayt; and his cultural explorations of Yiddish and its relationship with racism and antiracism, most notably in his acclaimed 2020 article for Jewish Currents, Translating Black Lives Matter into Yiddish. Anthony will discuss these and other recent developments of still being, after all these years, the black guy who sings in Yiddish, in conversation with Seth Rogovoy.
