Southern California is one of the nation’s most diverse places, home to a robust mix of racial, ethnic and religious communities. But throughout the region’s history, many of its residents — from people of color to religious minorities to the LGBTQ community — have faced acts of hate.
ProPublica and KPCC In Person are partnering on an event that takes a deep look at the history of hate and the experiences of Southern Californians today. The free event will explore decades of tensions between different communities of color, the recent emergence of white supremacist groups and how civil rights activists are combating hate crimes.
Moderated by ProPublica reporter A.C. Thompson and KPCC correspondent Adolfo Guzman-Lopez, the conversations will spotlight experts, historians and community leaders. We’ll also hear from Angelenos firsthand as they share their personal experiences with hate and prejudice.
