Jewish Federation – An International Holocaust Remembrance Day
Lessons from a Black Officer in WWII
Presenting Agent Reginald Johnson of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office Bias/Community Outreach Unit, and president of the Metuchen-Edison NAACP:
Agent Johnson will speak about his father, Maj. George Yancy Johnson, who was one of only a few Black commissioned officers at the beginning of World War II and participated in the liberation of Dachau concentration camp.
Hear how learning about his father’s experiences led Agent Johnson to dedicate his life to building bridges between Jews, Blacks, and other communities as a means to fight racism, bias, and hate.
