BET presents “Content For Change: Black x Jewish” – a timely and engaging conversation that examines how legacies of hate have impacted both the Black and Jewish communities in America and are often used as tools of division between them.

The show explores their shared history of subjugation and persecution, how important it has been in the past for these groups to come together in solidarity, and the need to do so now in the face of increased antisemitism, racism, and other hate crimes in recent years.

Produced in partnership with award-winning filmmaker, Lacey Schwartz Delgado and Truth Aid Media, the primetime special will explore how both communities can continue building pathways to allyship that leverages their shared resilience and shine a light on ways they can work together to defeat hate. “Content For Change: Black x Jewish” premieres Thursday, July 15 at 9pm/8c on BET.

The special will feature testimony from several individuals, some of whom are both Black and Jewish, that speak to the unique experience of facing both antisemitism and racism and how both prejudices are linked.

The range of voices include Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, social media influencer and entrepreneur Hannah Bronfman, community organizer and philanthropist Eric Ward, Executive Director of T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call For Human Rights Rabbi Jill Jacobs, entertainer and DEI strategist Rain Pryor, visiting scholar in Religion & African American Studies at Columbia University Obery Hendricks, PhD, IKAR senior rabbi and co-founder Rabbi Sharon Brous, media executive and radio personality Ebro Darden, professor Susannah Heschel, and founder of Dimensions Inc. Yavilah McCoy.

“Content For Change: Black x Jewish” is produced by Lacey Schwartz Delgado and Mehret Mandefro for Truth Aid Media. Jason Samuels serves as executive producer and Steven Ramey serves as the supervising producer for BET.
