About this Event
Presented by the Office of Alumni Relations and Constituent Engagement, in partnership with the Frederick Douglass Institute & Department of Black Studies , the Diversity Advisory Council, the University Equity and Inclusion Office, School of Medicine and Dentistry, and the Institutional Office of Equity and Inclusion
Join Kathleen Belew, PhD, leading historian studying the modern white power movement and associate professor of History at Northwestern University, for her presentation, “Understanding White Supremacy: Decoding the Actions of the White Power Movement.”
Replacement theory has a long history in the organized white power movement, which has used it to unify activists around social issues and for violent purposes. This presentation reviews this history and asks what danger the surge of such ideas in our political and media mainstream poses to free elections and American institutions.
This presentation will be followed by a Q&A session moderated by Jeffrey Q. McCune, Jr., PhD, Director, Frederick Douglass Institute & Department of Black Studies and Associate Professor of African-American Literature and Culture, Department of English.
Please register in advance. A link to join the program will be included in your confirmation email.
