Abstract:

The author reviews, compares and contrasts the history of African-Americans in the American South with the history of Southern Jews, and describes periods of time in which those histories and interests converged or differed. The author contends that for the most part, the stories of these two groups have been very different from one another, only recently converging more often than in the past.
