Super Bowl Ad to Raise Awareness About Antisemitism

The Times of Israel

An icon of Black history takes center stage in an ad placed by the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism on Sunday night’s Super Bowl LVIII, expected to be viewed by 100 million people.

Robert Kraft’s foundation launched the “#StandUptoJewishHate” campaign last year to raise awareness about antisemitism and the importance of opposing it. Now, it plans to bring that campaign to the matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Its Super Bowl ad features Clarence B. Jones, the former lawyer and adviser to Martin Luther King, Jr. who drafted King’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech for the 1963 March on Washington. He and Kraft have engaged in conversation about the historic Black-Jewish alliance in US politics, according to videos posted online by the foundation.
