Social Justice: The Musical!

Two documentaries, "Black Fiddler" (1969) and "Gee, Officer Krupke" (1975), will frame a panel discussion on race, class, cultural appropriation and the use of Jerome Robbins’ work to navigate social issues.

About the films:

"Black Fiddler" — "Fiddler on the Roof" is performed by African-American students at a junior high school in Ocean Hill-Brownsville, and controversy surrounds the production. The documentary explores issues of black anti-Semitism, racism among Jews, and cross-cultural understanding.

"Gee, Officer Krupke" — Edward A. Mason's Mental Health Training Film Series documents the rehearsal of the "Gee, Officer Krupke" scene from Leonard Bernstein's "West Side Story," and its ultimate public performance by a college theater group.
