      Jews of Color in Early America with Author Laura Leibman

      The Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia presents this exclusive author talk with Professor Laura Leibman author of Once We Were Slaves: The Extraordinary Journey of a Multi-Racial Jewish Family. Professor Leibman will share the extraordinary story of a Jewish genealogist from a prominent American family with a Jewish American pedigree going back before the Revolutionary War. She was searching for her grandmother's maternal line, and expected to find wealthy Sephardic Jews. Instead, she found poor, enslaved ancestors whose life stories will upend many of the ideas that we have about ourselves.
