Fred Jerome and Rodger Taylor talked about their book Einstein on Race and Racism, published by Rutgers University Press. In the book they brought together a compilation of documents, interviews, and narrative that show the scientist’s efforts toward ending racism both in the United States and the world. The book used Einstein’s letters and personal exchanges with such figures as W.E. B. Du Bois and Paul Robeson as evidence for his commitment to racial equality and the anti-lynching campaign. The book included interviews with African-American members of the community in New Jersey where Albert Einstein lived. Following their remarks, the authors responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
