Virtual Convention: Marra B. Gad: The Color of Love, A Story of a Mixed-race Jewish Girl at 12 p.m. PDT
A conversation with Cantor Kerith Spencer-Shapiro and Marra B. Gad addressing racial equality and racial justice in North America as a Jewish issue. Marra’s personal journey is reflected in her memoire, The Color of Love, which they will also discuss. In black spaces, she was not “black enough.” In Jewish spaces, she was mistaken for the help, asked to leave, or worse. Even in her own extended family, racism bubbled to the surface. Join Marra and Kerith for this conversation and Q&A session, which, in our current climate, is timelier than ever. Reading Marra’s book prior to joining the conversation will enable you as a participant to have a greater takeaway from this program. Signed bookplates will be available for all participants.
