Quoted: Susannah Heschel on Racism in America


“We talk about it too often in our high school history classes as part of the American economic history, let’s say. It doesn’t have the same kind of horror associated as, for example, when we teach the Holocaust. Why?” says Dartmouth’s Susannah Heschel during an MSNBC panel discussion about how the millennial generation understands racism.

Heschel is a professor of religion and the Eli Black Professor of Jewish Studies.
