Bea Gotthelf: Jewish Retiree Jackson, Mississippi
"A lot of Jewish people were involved in the civil rights movement, and I think it's because we've been through what they're going through. For thousands of years we have gone through bigotry and hatred. I can only speak for myself, but I always felt like I have walked in their shoes. But the thing that was easier for me was that I wasn't so obvious because my skin was white. They stand out because they're not white."
