of Ann Arbor.

ing with children from the
area housing units.
Mr. Peterson went to seven
area churches to sign up
workers for the January
rehab. "This is one of the first
times we had the opportunity
to work closely with the
Jewish community," he noted.
But despite his desire to
enlist an army of volunteers
from the black community,
Jewish individuals comprised
a majority of the volunteers
during both weekend
sessions.
Mr. Bryant was troubled by
the sparse black turnout, and
said it pointed to one goal of
the coalition, for blacks to
develop a self-help orientation
similar to the work ethic that
he felt was strong in the
Jewish community.
While attendance at
coalition-sponsored events is
strongly representative of
both communities, Ms.
Margolis said she felt the
rehab project meant some-
thing different to Jews than it
did to blacks.
She explained, "Jewish peo-
ple in the community, and
some blacks, have never been
to the south side (of Ypsi-
lanti). But it is more of a
unique experience to be there
for Jews. A lot of black people
in the community feel they do
a lot already, but Jews don't
have that opportunity."
Stanley Jones lives in an
apartment in the neighbor-
hood where the coalition had
been working. He has been a
member of the coalition since
its inception.
"Curiosity led me to the
group," said Mr. Jones. "Ever
since I was a kid, I have been

interested in the Jewish
culture and thought this
would be a good chance to
learn more."
Mr. Jones said being a
member of the coalition has
shattered a host of stereo-
types he had about Jewish
culture. He learned during
his involvement in the gorup
a great deal about the strug-
gles of Jewish people and how
Jews, like blacks, have been
persecuted throughout
history.
Much of the education
about black and Jewish
cultures results from informal
discussions that take place
during the coalition's
monthly meetings.
Mr. Jones and his wife
brought their three children
to January's MLK Day din-
ner at the JCC. Mr. Jones
said, "I'll be including my
children in the learning ex-
perience from now on."
The opportunity to learn
about a different culture had
prompted many people to
become active members of the
coalition. Members agree the
coalition has laid a solid foun-
dation for establishing a
widespread alliance between
the two communities. They
hope their ranks will con-
tinue to grow in strength and
numbers.
Mr. Peterson said, "Some
people ask 'Why not just form
a white-black coalition?' They
don't understand the simi-
larities between the struggles
of blacks and Jews."
He also noted that many
Americans, including Jews,
fail to understand the frustra-
tions of being black in
modern America.
