Hate Crimes in the Heartland

At a time when racial tensions in America have never been higher, and new media tools are more diverse than ever, these issues are of the foremost relevance to America’s social fabric.
— Hate Crimes in the Heartland - "Future"

On February 4th, from 6-8pm at Aaron Davis Hall at the City College of New York, I'll be speaking on a panel of national and local leaders and thinkers at the premier of Hate Crimes in the Heartland, a film that explores the connections between the 1921 riots and the 2012 racial violence both experienced in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Given that there are over 250,000 reported hate crimes in the United States each year, I feel humbled to be a part of this discussion that will explore how far we've come, and how far we have to go when it comes to being the "post racial" society that pundits claims the United States to be.
