Event Details

Inspiring Visions Featuring Dr. Joyce LadnerInspiring Visions illuminates the Breman's exhibition Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges. The exhibit and film tell the story of Jewish academics who, dismissed from their teaching positions in Nazi Germany and Austria, escaped to America. They found new lives as academics in the historically black colleges of the Jim Crow South. A deep empathy developed between the teachers and students of these two groups, each with a history of persecution. 

Dr. Joyce Ladner is featured in the film, along with her Tougaloo College professor Dr. Ernst Borinski, a refugee from Nazi Germany, who inspired her to pursue her education in the field of sociology. She was the first woman president of Howard University and is the author of several books focusing on the strengths of black mothers and families. 

The moderator of the event is Pulitzer Prize winning author Hank Klibanoff. Klibanoff has served as the Managing Editor of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Deputy Managing Editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer and is currently a journalism professor at Emory University.

The Breman Museum presents this event in partnership with: The United Negro College Fund, Skirball Fellowship for Intercultural Understanding and Leadership; The National Center for Civil and Human Rights; Full Circle Living; American Jewish Committee, Atlanta; Anti-Defamation League, Atlanta; Atlanta Black/Jewish Coalition; Morehouse College; Martin Luther King Jr. Collection; Spelman College; Woodruff Library at Atlanta University Center.
