The Eddie Cantor Story: A Jewish Life in Performance and Politics
Wednesday, February 27, 10:30am

Presented by David Weinstein, author and historian

David Weinstein will discuss Eddie Cantor and the history of American Jewish popular entertainment. He will talk about how his book documents Cantor’s significance as a performer, philanthropist, and activist. The book highlights Cantor’s influence on American Jewish social and political history through his celebrity activism, including his courageous campaign against Nazism during the 1930s. The Eddie Cantor Story also explores Cantor’s influence on popular entertainment over nearly forty years, from the late 1910s through the early 1950s.
