Social Action Book and Movie Club

Monday, February 20, 2023 29 Shevat 5783

8:00 PM - 9:00 PM

All are welcome to join the members of the Social Action Book and Movie Club for their monthly Zoom meeting. For February, the club resumes its meetings with Once We Were Slaves by Laura Arnold Leibman.

Once We Were Slaves overturns the reclusive heiress's (Moses) assumptions about her family history to reveal that her grandmother and great uncle, Sarah and Isaac Brandon, began their lives as poor Christian slaves in Barbados. Tracing the siblings' extraordinary journey through the Atlantic World, Leibman examines artefacts they left behind in Barbados, Suriname, London, Philidelphia, and finally New York to show how Sarah and Isaac were able to transform themselves and their lives becoming free, wealthy, Jewish and at times, white.

Please contact Deborah Rosen for the Zoom information.
