This two-part series looks at the causes for, and ways to address, hate, hostility, and prejudice in our communities and across the country. Following up on the conversation with Ken Stern in May, we talk with Eric Ward, Executive Director of the Western States Center and a Senior Fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center. Eric has spent the last 30 years exploring the relationship between authoritarian movements, hate, and violence.
A respected author, speaker, and activist, he talks about how and why white nationalism has become so prevalent and what individuals and communities can do to combat this dangerous trend. Eric cautions that we cannot ignore what is happening and that racial inequality and the deepening divide in the country are threats to all of our freedoms.
