Tachmindji Event: The Journey of a Former White Supremacist

November 3, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

As Americans face the rise of militant white supremacy and the legacy of white privilege, Dr. Gopin proposes that encounters of love and friendship are the most powerful forces for change.   This story of three friends who met in college illustrates the incredible change that can take place, even for a deeply connected, former youth leader in the white supremacy movement. The program includes a conversation with panelists, open discussion, and a reception.

Panel: Matthew Stevenson, Allison Gornik, and R. Derek Black.  Three young graduates, including a former white supremacist leader, share their dramatic story of friendship and change.

Moderator:  Dr. Marc Gopin, Director of the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution at George Mason University
