Healing from Hate: Battle for the Soul of a Nation (2019, 85 min) with panel discussion to follow

September 8, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This 2019 documentary takes a deep dive into the minds of men who gravitate toward white supremacist hate groups. Focusing on the bold work of the group Life After Hate – an organization founded by former Skinheads and neo-Nazis now engaged in de-radicalizing violent extremists on the front lines – the film makes a powerful case that the men who join these groups are motivated less by ideology than by a desperate need to prove their manhood. Healing from Hate is at once a stunning document of racism and white-male grievance in America, and a powerful portrait of a group of people working together to de-radicalize hate groups and heal communities torn apart by white male insecurity, resentment, and rage. Hosted by the Office of Outreach and Education’s Speaker Series.
