With our national reckoning over racism, media outlets have reached out asking for my thoughts and perspectives on the history of American Jews, race relations, and antisemitism. Most recently, the NFL network, CNNaudio, ESPN, and Yahoo Sports have carried interviews about the rise of antisemitism among professional athletes as well as the complexities around Jews, whiteness, power and privilege.

Don Lemon: Finding Common Ground
In the wake of antisemitic comments from prominent Black athletes and entertainers, we examine the strong alliances and deeply ingrained tensions between the Black and Jewish communities.

Don talks to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who recently penned an article on this topic, as well as historian Marc Dollinger and political strategist Ginna Green.
