The Tam Institute for Jewish Studies (TIJS) will feature Prof. George J. Sánchez of the University of Southern California (USC) as the speaker for this year’s Rothschild Lecture, which is titled “’What’s Good for Boyle Heights is Good for the Jews’: Creating Multiracialism in East Los Angeles During the 1950s.” This lecture will take place at the Oxford Presentation Room on campus, and will discuss the creation of a multicultural radicalism in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East Los Angeles during the 1950s. This new relationship between the Jewish and Mexican American communities took place during an exodus of Jews to Southern California's white suburbs after World War II, while leftists of all races sought refuge in Boyle Heights to escape the growing conservatism of McCarthyism.
 
Dr. Sánchez is Professor of American Studies & Ethnicity and History at the University of Southern California. His academic work focuses on both historical and contemporary topics of race, gender, ethnicity, labor, and immigration.
