The Joy that Carries You examines the radical (and not so radical) differences in privilege and experiences of its two queer protagonists, an African-American woman named Alaia and an Ashkenazi Jewish-American woman named Shiri. The fault-lines in their relationship echo fault-lines in contemporary Black-Jewish community relations, which demand investigation in the wake of our country’s racial reckoning and its rising anti Semitism. Join expert panelists Meredith R. Weisel, Regional Director, Anti Defamation League, James Stove, Director of Montgomery County Human Rights Commission and others as they consider how the longstanding allyship between Blacks and Jews has been tested in recent American history.
