Now the subject of an all-star panel discussion at the Center for Jewish History on November 12th at 7 pm, History Behind the Headlines: Socialism examines the polarizing resurgence of socialism today, its historic successes and devastating failures, and how New York’s primarily Jewish socialist movement paved the way for change a century ago. As we approach the 2020 presidential election, History Behind the Headlines: Socialism is the first in a series of programs designed to look at today’s political issues against the backdrop of history.Jane Eisner, former Editor-in-Chief of the Forward and Columbia Journalism School Director of Academic Affairs, moderates a spirited discussion with Washington Post columnist Catherine Rampell; New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz; University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor of American Jewish History Tony Michels; and former Deputy Director of the Democratic Socialists of America David Duhalde.
Presented by the Center for Jewish History, the American Jewish Historical Society & The Workmen’s Circle.
