Touched with Fire: Morris B. Abram and the Battle Against Racial and Religious Discrimination

Wednesday, September 30 | 5:00 PM | $10

Join us for Cocktails and Conversations with David E. Lowe author of Touched with Fire: Morris B. Abram and the Battle Against Racial and Religious Discrimination. Lowe tells the powerful and timely story of Civil Rights attorney, Morris Abram. From humble beginnings, Abram rose to positions of power and influence during his life, speaking out for Soviet Jews behind the Iron Curtain, Israel’s legitimacy as the Jewish State, desegregation during the Jim Crow era, and racial equality in Georgia’s electoral system which led to the Supreme Court’s ‘one person, one vote’ ruling. David Lowe won the 2019 National Jewish Book Award for Biography for this little-known story of Jewish leadership and courage. Abram’s varied career sheds light on our own troubled times.. Make sure to mix up the signature cocktail: Fireball Hot Apple Cider.

Presented in Partnership with Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia and JCRC of Greater Washington
