In the eight years between the end of the World War II and the armistice in Korea, how did Jews and blacks regard each other? What were common black and Jewish leadership goals in the struggle to abolish American minority discrimination? Were there indications in the postwar years of the conflict that would later erupt between the two groups? In an attempt to answer these questions, the leading Jewish journals and newspapers in the U.S. and two African American newspapers were subjected to content analysis.
