Face to Face: Encounters Between Jews & Blacks
by photographer Laurence Salzmann
with Foreword by William H. Gray, III
Face to Face: Encounters between Jews & Blacks juxtaposes through photographs and quotations how African Americans and Jews view each other, and by so doing reveals much about humor, human interaction, and coexistence in America.
It is hard to overstate the importance of an emotional as well as an intellectual understanding of these intergroup dynamics, if we are, as a nation, to fulfill our promise as "the last best hope of the world."Few works do this important job so well as Face to Face: Encounters between Jews & Blacks.

"The voices in Face to Face: Encounters between Jews & Blacks are as powerful as Laurence Salzmann's images and both demand the attention of anyone interested in Black-Jewish reconciliation."
- Letty Cottin Pogrebin
"What a powerful art so necessary for our troubled times. Laurence Salzmann's Face to Face: Encounters Between Jews & Blacks takes us behind the abstractions and generalities to the precious Black and Jewish faces so that we can find our own humanity and let the healing continue."
- Cornell West
"...the Salzmann book comes down squarely for dialogue with the sane and moderate elements on both sides. We owe those elements our participation as a voice within American Jewry. It's a risk, but it's a risk that we must take."
- Chaim Potok
A study guide that accompanies the book is available, also.
