History With Chutzpah:

The 250+ artifacts, documents, photographs and oral histories in the exhibition, reveal stories from the generations before us and offer you a journey into Jewish culture unlike any other. Enhanced by personal interviews, oral history excerpts and interactive screen displays. Jewish Southerners adapted to, adopted or affected the society that surrounded them, while simultaneously retaining and celebrating their unique cultural heritage. Some had bold ideas that led to innovation and change, and some held values that impelled them to rebel against ‘the way things were,’ and others accepted the culture and customs of the South.

A Jazz Memoir

In support of the Breman Museum’s mission to “Connect people to Jewish history, culture, and arts,” the newest exhibition, A Jazz Memoir: Photography by Herb Snitzer features photography documenting America’s jazz scene, focusing on the 1957–1964, of his over fifty-year career. For most of that time, Herb was the photography editor for Metronome, the primary magazine devoted to jazz. Images of Louis Armstrong, Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Count Basie and many others are showcased in the exhibit. Additional works reveal his desire to use photography to effect social change and his belief that “Injustice for one is injustice for all.” A Jazz Memoir also speaks to the links that connect Jews, jazz and the African American community.
