In light of the recent mass shootings, one of which was allegedly fueled by hate, we take a deeper look at hate in America.
We start by airing a documentary produced by the Carnegie-Knight News21 program, which is headquartered at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Student journalists from around the country produced a film titled “American Hate,” which explores the legacy of hate in American and what it means in our country today.
We’ll follow that up with a discussion the legacy of hate in our country and state with Neal Lester, the founding director of Arizona State University’s Project Humanities, Carlos Galindo-Elvira, the regional director of the Anti-defamation League in Arizona, Irasema Coronado, director of the Arizona State University School of Transborder Studies, and Petra Falcon, executive director of Promise Arizona, an organization that works for the rights of migrants.
