Pacific Street Films proudly presents From Swastika to Jim Crow, a fascinating and moving one-hour documentary that tells the previously untold story of the many 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. Through in-depth interviews with many of the surviving professors as well as their former students, From Swastika to Jim Crow uncovers a remarkable moment in American history and offers a fresh perspective on the complex history of race relations and anti-semitism in America. Major funding provided by ITVS (Independent Television Service) and The National Foundation for Jewish Culture.
