- Attached is a photo of my dad (on the left with glasses) and our baseball team, which tells a different story of black Jewish relations. 3 of the white kids are Jewish, and 2 others who are brothers have an interesting story. As an adult looking at this picture, I notice a team that is predominantly black with a few white kids. I imagine many adults during that time noticed this. As a kid, however, I never noticed that the majority was black, as were most of the coaches who were also my mentors. We did not ignore that some kids were black and others white, but we primarily saw each other as friends. Growing up in North Avondale from a kid's point of view was special. And I admire the adults who inculcated a healthy to think about and not think about race.
