'I’ve Always Been a Jew’: Religion, Race, and the Problem of Sammy Davis Jr. – a Virtual Lecture with Rebecca Davis
Personal reinvention is a core part of the human condition. Yet, in the mid-twentieth century, certain private religious choices became lightning rods for public outrage and debate. In this talk, Rebecca Davis, professor of History and Women & Gender Studies at the University of Delaware and author of "Public Confessions: The Religious Conversions That Changed American Politics", will explain why the new faiths of notable figures – particulary Sammy Davis Jr. – riveted the American public.
