Emory's annual Rothschild Lecture will explore "Harvey Milk through a Jewish Lens," with guest scholar Lillian Faderman.
Harvey Milk, gay martyr and American icon, spoke often of himself as a "New York Jew." His self-chosen appellation was intended to be confrontational, but Dr. Faderman will trace the ways in which it also told the story of his upbringing, values, and deeply emotional identification.
This event is free and open to the public.
Please join us for a reception following the lecture.
Copies of Dr. Faderman’s book, Harvey Milk: His Lives and Death, will be available for purchase.
