Facing History and Ourselves presents

Unlearning Hate

Happening in the Lyric Theatre

Derek Black was a true believer. As the son of the founder of Stormfront, the largest white supremacist community online, and the godson of a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, he was poised to spread organized hatred and bigotry worldwide with the tools of 21st century technology. His journey out of darkness began out of curiosity and with an invitation to a Shabbat dinner.

Join us for a moving conversation with Derek Black and Allison Gornik, whose intervention was critical to Derek renouncing his white nationalist beliefs.

The Canadian office of Facing History and Ourselves is commemorating 10 years of giving young people the knowledge and skills to confront bigotry and antisemitism, and be agents for change. Facing History and Ourselves transforms required lessons in history into inspired lessons in humanity to empower youth who will change the world for the better.
