Description

In the early 1990's the Humanities Council of Washington, DC produced the Urban Odyssey series of documentaries. The installments tell the stories of historic local figures in their own words. In this episode Isaac Franck, a noted Jewish Civil Rights activist, describes how the District's Jewish and African-American communities fought with (and sometimes against) one another in a common struggle.From his arrival in Washington in 1948, Franck saw the need for Jewish residents and other communities to join forces to combat the injustice and inequality that was pervasive in that period. Franck worked with civil rights groups in the 1950s and 1960s, and also strove to unite different elements of the Jewish community.

Urban Odyssey was a 1991 series produced by the Humanities Council of Washington, DC for DCTV Public Access Television.
