Today, multiracial Jews make up 10-25% of the Jewish population in the United States with nearly 87,000 nonwhite, Hispanic, or multiracial Jewish households in the New York area alone. Most people tend to think of multiracial as a fairly recent phenomenon, but in this talk Laura Arnold Leibman, Reed College, reveals the early history of multiracial Jews in the United States and Caribbean and explains how their stories got lost in common tellings of Jewish American history.

Laura Leibman is the author of The Art of the Jewish Family: A History of Women in Early New York in Five Objects which won three National Jewish Book Awards. Her latest book Once We Were Slaves is about an early multiracial Jewish family who began their lives enslaved in the Caribbean and became some of the wealthiest Jews in New York.
