On Thursday, Feb. 1, Jewish Museum, 1360 N. Prospect Ave., Milwaukee hosts a screening and talkback for the film “From Swastika to Jim Crow” from 7 to 9 p.m. Based on a book by the late author Gabrielle Simon Edgecomb, ‘From Swastika to Jim Crow’ tells the little-known story of Jewish refugee scholars who escaped Nazi persecution by fleeing to America, and when faced with anti-Semitic sentiment at mainstream American universities, were hired for positions at historically black colleges and universities in the then-segregated South. The event is $6 for members and $8 for non-members, and tickets are available here.
