Nobel Prize-winning physicist Albert Einstein is well known for his contributions to science, but not so publicized are his efforts to speak out against racism in the United States, as evidenced by papers written by Einstein recently made public. Ze’ev Rosenkranz, assistant director and senior editor of the Einstein Papers Project at the California Institute of Technology, joins Arise America to discuss this little known side of Einstein.
Albert Einstein’s message to Ferguson, Missouri
August 11, 2015
The immortal physicist, moral philosopher and fervent violinist was so disturbed by the state of racial relations in his American homeland that in 1946 he published an agonised denunciation of ‘this deeply entrenched evil.’
