Join this critical discussion on Racial Justice and white nationalism beginning Thursday, October 27th, at 1 p.m. ET US (UTC -4) to contribute your thoughts and hear from our panel, including:
Deeyah Khan: Deeyah Khan is a BAFTA and two-time Emmy and Peabody award winning documentary filmmaker. Through her work she has explored how people are drawn to violent extremist movements. She has spent many years filming Islamist extremists, convicted terrorists, former jihadis, as well as current and former white supremacists and domestic terrorists, including armed militia groups in America for her documentaries. Deeyah is also the founder of Fuuse, an independent media, education and arts production company. In 2016, she became the first UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for artistic freedom and creativity.
Arno Michaelis: In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Arno Michaelis was a leader of a worldwide racist skinhead organization, a reverend of a self-declared Racial Holy War, and lead singer of the hate-metal band Centurion, which sold 20,000 CDs by the mid-nineties and is still popular with racists today. Single parenthood, love for his daughter, and the forgiveness shown by people he once hated all helped to turn Arno’s life around, bringing him to embrace diversity and practice gratitude for all life.
