This documentary follows 60 years of Black/Jewish relations in Brownsville, Brooklyn -- known first as a racially integrated community unified by shared liberal politics, and then as the setting of a watershed schism between blacks and Jews in the late 1960s.  Brownsville residents and former residents provide eloquent testimony to the changes the neighborhood has seen.
