A Question of Tolerance

We hear about the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe, the Arab world, and even the Far East, but what about its presence in the United States? Stephen E. Atkins, author, Dorothy G. Whitley Professor of Library Collection Management and Associate Dean for Library Management at Texas A & M University will discuss the pattern of current U.S. anti-Semitism, touching upon the challenges of alternative viewpoints in the Academic Library today. This will be
followed by the viewing of "Columbia Unbecoming", filmed at the request of students at Columbia University by the David Project in late 2004, to document the bias and the intimidation directed at Israel and its supporters on campus. The program will end on a happier note with a performance by members of the famous New Orleans Klezmer All Stars.
