The Center for the Healing of Racism will present a screening of the film “From Swastika to Jim Crow” on Thursday, November 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, at 3412 Crawford St., Houston, 77004. The one-hour documentary tells the little known story of German Jewish professors who, expelled from their homeland by the Nazis, found new lives and careers at all-Black colleges and universities in the South. The film uncovers a remarkable moment in U.S. history while offering a fresh perspective on the complex history of race relations in the United States. The screening will be followed by a discussion. The event is free and open to the public (first 45 to RSVP). Donations encouraged. Registration required by emailing cfhr1@juno.com or calling (713) 520-8226. Free parking is available at Houston Community College lot #9. Website: http://www.centerhealingracism.org/
