Facing History and Ourselves Cleveland is celebrating 20 years of supporting young people to confront bigotry and antisemitism. Save the date, Tuesday, May 7, for a moving evening about the power of identity and personal transformation. Marc Skvirsky, Facing History’s Vice President and Chief Program Officer, will lead a conversation with R. Derek Black, a former white nationalist, and Allison Gornik, whose intervention was critical to his transformation, about what it means to walk away from a life of hate and into an inclusive and diverse community.
Meaningful engagement with our past and present is the foundation of a strong and humane democracy. This is the moment. Together we can help prepare the next generation to face history now.
