Curtis Library hosts “In the Shadow of Pittsburgh: Making Sense of Antisemitism,” a talk by Howard Solomon, at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 17. Registration not required. For more information, please visit curtislibrary.com or contact the reference desk at 725-5242.
Howard Solomon is an artist, historian, and retired professor. For forty years, at Tufts, NYU, and USM, he taught courses on groups which were frequently relegated to the margins of historical memory; for his social activism in Maine, he has received lifetime achievement awards from Equality Maine and USM's Sampson Center for Diversity. Currently living in Maine but originally from Pennsylvania, Solomon was deeply affected by the attack upon a Pittsburgh synagogue in October 2018, and is eager to share his insight and perspective with others.
Please join us for a conversation about the history of antisemitism, what it looks like, why it exists, and what we can do about it.
