Walking along its narrow European-like streets and viewing unique forms of architecture that contribute so greatly to the neighborhood’s character;
Engaging with locally owned and family-run businesses along its 130-plus-year-old commercial center; and
Learning about the Fulton Cotton Mill and bearing witness to its place in Atlanta’s complex social, economic, and cultural web in the 19th and 20th Centuries

    THE JAZZ SINGER | Blacks, Jews, and Jazz | Live Discussion

Telling a story about Jewish assimilation via jazz music, the film notoriously featured Al Jolson in blackface for its climatic numbers. Join Dr. Dwight Andrews and Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein for discussion of its use of jazz, its racial dynamics, and its place in the long and unfortunate history of the representation of Blackface, which persists to this day.
