Perry Brickman – Emory Dental School

Earlier this month, after more than 50 years of denial, Emory University formally apologized for years of anti-Semitism at its dental school, when dozens of Jewish students were flunked out or forced to repeat courses, leaving many feeling inadequate and ashamed for decades despite successful careers. This apology came due to the work of Perry Brickman, a former Emory University student, who compiled hours of video featuring interviews with former students who suffered the same fate. Brickman joins David to tell his personal story of discrimination and why he decided to speak up so many years later.
