Erika Davis, Black Gay Jewish, Fighting Racism in the Jewish Community, Anti Black Racism, Anti-Blackness

Erika Davis, who runs the blog Black Gay and Jewish, talks about the work she’s doing to fight racism in the Jewish community with the Jewish Multiracial Network.

On this episode, we talk about the Montreal businessman being called the ‘Jewish Schindler’ and break our promise to stop talking about the Canadian election. We reflect on the legacy of Montreal’s Yom Kippur Ball and try to get to the bottom of an instance of vandalism at an Illinois Chabbad Centre.
