Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary
Join the Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights as Integrity First for America Executive Director Amy Spitalnick and attorneys Jessica Phillips and Michael Bloch explore the violence surrounding the 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and its legal aftermath.
Three years ago, white supremacists meticulously planned and carried out a violent attack on Charlottesville that resulted in dozens of injuries and the death of Heather Heyer. We will explore the path from Charlottesville to the Capitol; how this movement of violent white supremacists and other far-right extremists has grown; and, most importantly, how we bring these individuals and hate groups to account, starting with IFA's landmark Charlottesville lawsuit, Sines v. Kessler, which takes on the leaders of this violent movement and heads to trial this fall.
Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary is a weekly lecture series presenting preeminent scholars, thought leaders, and public intellectuals to guide our community through topics necessary to a deeper understanding of systemic racism and racial justice.
Lectures are available to the Notre Dame community via Zoom. Registration with a valid nd.edu or alumni.nd.edu is required.
