Unpacking Charlottesville: The History
and Perpetuation of Hate
Join COCC scholars Tom Barry, Jessica Hammerman, and Murray Godfrey as they help
us understand the context for the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia.
What has been the history of hate groups in the U.S.? What roles do social
media and politics play in the perpetuation of racism and
anti-Semitism? Where do ideas of anti-Semitism come from? What can
we all do to foster a safe and respectful environment at COCC? Come explore
these questions and raise a few of your own. Free and open to the public.
