Engaging The Outskirts

Join activist and author Jo Ivester Author on Wednesday, June 13 at Congregation Beth Israel (New Orleans) for a conversation on Engaging the Outskirts. This event is co-sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater New OrleansADL New OrleansHadassah New Orleans, and NCJW Greater New Orleans Section.

Jo will recount the two years her family spent in an all-black town in the Mississippi Delta during the turbulent 1960s. Through sharing highly personal stories about their experiences, Jo makes the civil rights movement come alive and inspires her audiences to make a difference. Moving seamlessly between the 1960s and the present, Jo encourages people to recognize the problems we still face and how they can help.
