Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Exploring the ties and tensions between Ferguson's Jewish and Palestinian activists.


There are many Jews and Palestinians working side by side for the cause of Black liberation in St. Louis, and more broadly nationwide. That threatens people in a way. When there are different ethnic groups uniting against White supremacy and calling out flaws in White leadership, it makes people extremely nervous.

Live from St. Louis, journalist Sarah Kendzior explores the complicated relationship between the Black Lives Matter movement and local Jewish and Palestinian activists, fighting for Black liberation while at times struggling to maintain solidarity and cooperation in a city the media has abandoned and white flight has stripped of resources.

Sarah wrote The Jewish and Palestinian Activists of the Ferguson Movement for Medium.
