Join Facing History and Ourselves for a conversation with Eli Saslow, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist. Saslow's book details how a small community of college students helped change the heart and mind of the heir apparent to America's white nationalist movement. Saslow will share his insights about how white-supremacist ideas of racism and antisemitism migrated from the far-right fringe to the streets of Charlottesville and beyond, in order to help us reconcile this polarized American moment and to better understand one another.
This event is presented in partnership with Beth Sholom Synagogue, Latino Memphis, Memphis Jewish Community Center, Memphis Jewish Federation, NAACP Memphis, the National Civil Rights Museum, Temple Israel, and the University of Memphis Department of History.
