Village of Peace

The Israel-Palestine divide is often depicted as one of racial conflict, yet about half of Israeli citizens are people of color. The complexity of race and culture in Israel will be explored in a new series hosted by the Ithaca Coalition for Unity and Cooperation in the Middle East (ICUCME): “Israeli Citizens of Color: From Ethiopia to Chicago to the Negev.”

The film “Village of Peace” explores a community of Black Hebrews who left Chicago to settle in the Negev Desert in the late 1960's. The original 400 African Americans who began the community have prospered; the village is now home to more than 5,000 Black Hebrews. The film will be followed by a community discussion.

Tickets are free, donations appreciated.
