Changing the Public Discourse around Race



ISRAEL/PALESTINE, SOUTH AFRICA, AND THE USA
MAKING THE CONNECTIONS

  What—if any—parallels can be drawn between the Zionist project and  
the ideology and impact of “white supremacy” that justified westward  
expansion and buttressed Jim Crow segregation in the United States?  
What are the links between Israel and apartheid South Africa and to  
what extent can the apartheid analogy be applied to Israel/Palestine?  
After exploring these questions, this talk will examine the movement  
against Israeli apartheid, which is gathering momentum  
internationally and within the US.
