JCC Speaker Luncheon - October

  • Raleigh-Cary Jewish Community Center 12804 Norwood Road Raleigh, NC, 27613 United States (map)

JCC partners with Carolina Public Humanities, College of Arts & Sciences at UNC, to present "Hollywood, the American Dream Factory: How Jewish American Immigrants Shaped the American Dream"

Hollywood's films in the last 100 years depict both the idealized myth of the American dream and the harsh reality of the immigrant experience.  As Jewish American moguls transitioned to life in the US what influence did  both myth and reality have in their own lives?  How did this contribute to shaping the American Dream in film? Lunch provided by Preston Pointe for those with paid RSVP by October 10. Free chance for all attendees to win a glitzy gift basket.

About the speaker: Dr Rachel Jones Schaevitz, UNC's Associate Director for State Outreach and Strategic Partnerships, is a lecturer in production and practice of Media in the Public Service at UNC Chapel Hill.

Please note, this event is on a Thursday.
