What leads white people to perpetuate extreme, white nationalist violence?

This is the question acclaimed filmmaker, director, and activist Deeyah Khan investigates in her Emmy-winning, BAFTA-nominated documentary White Right: Meeting the Enemy (2017).  Deeyah Khan sits face-to-face with fascists, racists and the proponents of the ‘alt-right’ ideologies […] As she tries to get beyond the scare stories to the real stories, behind the headlines to the human beings, Deeyah Khan finds her own prejudices challenged and her own tolerance tested.

This free virtual screening and discussion event is open to the public and is organized by Uprooting Racism, the antiracism community group at the Rochester Zen Center in Rochester, NY.
