In August of 1991, the Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights was engulfed in violence following the deaths of Gavin Cato and Yankel Rosenbaum—a West Indian boy struck by a car in the motorcade of a Hasidic spiritual leader and an orthodox Jew stabbed by a Black teenager. The ensuing unrest thrust the tensions between the Lubavitch Hasidic community and their Afro-Caribbean and African American neighbors into the media spotlight, spurring local and national debates on diversity and multiculturalism. Crown Heights became a symbol of racial and religious division. Yet few have paused to examine the nature of Black-Jewish difference in Crown Heights, or to question the flawed assumptions about race and religion that shape the politics—and perceptions—of conflict in the community. In Race and Religion among the Chosen Peoples of Crown Heights, Henry Goldschmidt explores the everyday realities of difference in Crown Heights. Drawing on two years of fieldwork and interviews, he argues that identity formation is particularly complex in Crown Heights because the neighborhood’s communities envision the conflict in remarkably diverse ways. Lubavitch Hasidic Jews tend to describe it as a religious difference between Jews and Gentiles, while their Afro-Caribbean and African American neighbors usually define it as a racial difference between Blacks and Whites. These tangled definitions are further complicated by government agencies who address the issue as a matter of culture, and by the Lubavitch Hasidic belief—a belief shared with a surprising number of their neighbors—that they are a “chosen people” whose identity transcends the constraints of the social world. The efforts of the Lub­avitch Hasidic community to live as a divinely chosen people in a diverse Brooklyn neighbor­hood where collective identi­ties are generally defined in terms of race illuminate the limits of American multiculturalism—a concept that claims to celebrate diversity, yet only accommodates variations of certain kinds. Taking the history of conflict in Crown Heights as an invitation to reimagine our shared social world, Goldschmidt interrogates the boundaries of race and religion and works to create space in American society for radical forms of cultural difference.

The Jew A Negro Being A Study Of The Jewish Ancestry From An Impartial Standpoint

"The most the startling book of the year...its research is unanswerable." -Literary DigestAbernethy's 1910 book "The Jew a Negro" has been analyzed by numerous modern authors studying race relations in earlier times in America. Arthur Talmage Abernethy, PH. D., (1872 -1956) was a professor, Methodist pastor in New York and North Carolina, and a Democratic candidate for congress in North Carolina. He was a gifted speaker and author a score of historical books, as well as being the youngest son of the founder of Rutherford College. He was elected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science and became the poet laureate of North Carolina. Abernethy's 1910 book "The Jew a Negro" has been analyzed by numerous modern authors studying race relations in earlier times in America. For example, the 2006 "Jewish Roots in Southern Soil: A New History" notes:"One southern writer, the North Carolina minister Arthur T. Abernethy, published an entire book arguing that 'the Jew of to-day is essentially Negro in habits, physical peculiarities and tendencies." In rare cases, ... Jews were ... grouped with blacks.'" The 2006 book "The Price of Whiteness: Jews, Race, and American Identity" states:"Published in 1910 by the North Carolina minister and professor Arthur T. Abernethy, The Jew a Negro argued that ancient Jews had thoroughly mixed with neighboring African peoples, leaving little significant difference between the Jewish and Negro types. As the Jews migrated to more temperate climes, their skin lightened and they became successful, but their essential racial similarity to blacks remained unaltered." The 2011 book "The Colors of Zion" point out: "A peripheral literature sprang up to classify Jews as 'negroid.' One notorious instance is The Jew a Negro (1910) by the North Carolinian Reverend Arthur T. Abernethy."The 1999 book "Strangers & Neighbors: Relations Between Blacks & Jews in the United States" cites to Abernethy's book, in stating: "One southern writer insisted Jews were of Negro descent." In 1997, American Jewish History, Volume 85 notes that "The Jew a Negro, Being A Study of the Jewish Ancestry from an Impartial Standpoint by the Rev. Arthur T. Abernethy, A.M., Ph.D. Abernethy - a preacher, professor, and rustic journalist - sought to demonstrate through 'ethnology' and 'Scriptural proofs' how 'the Jew of to-day, as well as his ancestors in other times, is the kinsman and descendant of the Negro." Black Hebrew Israelites (also called Black Hebrews, African Hebrew Israelites, and Hebrew Israelites) are groups of Black Americans who believe that they are descendants of the ancient Israelites. Black Hebrews adhere in varying degrees to the religious beliefs and practices of both Christianity and Judaism. They are not recognized as Jews by the greater Jewish community. Many choose to identify themselves as Hebrew Israelites or Black Hebrews rather than Jews in order to indicate their claimed historic connections. Books linking the ancestry of Jews and Blacks have become popular such as "From Babylon to Timbuktu: A History of the Ancient Black Races Including the Black Hebrews." Many Black Hebrew groups were founded in the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, from Kansas to New York, by both African Americans and West Indian immigrants. In the mid-1980s, the number of Black Hebrews in the United States was between 25,000 and 40,000. In the 1990s, the Alliance of Black Jews (which is no longer operating) estimated that there were 200,000 African-American Jews; this estimate was based on a 1990 survey conducted by the Council of Jewish Federations.

THE UNTOLD STORY is a depiction of a chosen people who civilized the continents of Africa and Asia. These chosen people were Ethiopians. There are five central characters in this book: Enoch, Noah, Moses, Abraham and Jesus Christ. The Untold Story provides a vivid and accurate account of a chosen people who were specifically selected by God to be his people, to live accordantly to his will, but failed to live up to his expectations. This eventually caused a deportation out of their land in Israel and parts of Africa. They are now scattered throughout the world. This book also provides a history of the many nationalities that make up the world as you see it today, the history of religions and who started them, and lastly the Anti-Christ. You will find that this book will challenge the mind to know more of man's origin and one's family tree. This book will be helpful in both churches and schools.
