Scope and Contents

Video recording of the Antisemitism at Davidson: Then and Now Panel Discussion, held March 14, 2019 in the Lilly Family Gallery of Chambers Building. Speakers included Professor Ronald Linden, Professor Ruth Ault, alum Joe Pearlman '79, and current student Caroline Black '20. The panelists were asked a series of questions regarding ways Jewish identity at Davidson has changed over time, as well as their experiences with antisemitism. Linden specifically discusses his experiences in 1977 when he was offered a faculty position at Davidson College that was then rescinded when he expressed commitment to his Jewish faith. This discriminatory incident received national news coverage and ultimately led to changes regarding faculty Christian commitments.
