VIDEO SPOTLIGHT

Albuquerque By Storyteller Gerry Fierst

Growing up in New York City, Gerry never understood that Jews were such a small percentage of the world's population. In his neighborhood, one could go for blocks and blocks and never meet anyone who wasn't Jewish. But when Gerry went to visit cousins who had retired to Albuquerque, he discovered that “we all look alike when we are the other.”

"And she said to herself, “Five days a week, I work as a dressmaker to support myself and my family... what I earn on that sixth day, I could send that money to educate one child.”
And that’s what she did. She never met Mary McLeod Bethune but she changed Mary McLeod Bethune’s life, and through Mary McLeod Bethune, the lives of thousands of other people.
