Comics and the Jewish American Dream

Length: 1 hr 30 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Comic books were invented by American Jews in the 1930's and 1940's. Did this come about, as some maintain, because anti-Semitism kept Jewish artists, writers and entrepreneurs out of more "reputable" areas of publishing? And did comics in any way reflect the Jewish background of its original exponents?

In this series JULES FEIFFER joins moderator Danny Fingeroth to discuss his career and reflect on how his work has been influenced by his Jewish heritage.
