Challenging the Normalization of Hate: Strategies for Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation: Webinar

The Center for Teaching and Learning and the Gephardt Institute are partnering to air a webinar, “Challenging the Normalization of Hate: Strategies for Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation,” from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). The webinar will air on Tuesday, February 18 from 3-4 PM at Stix House, 6470 Forsyth Boulevard.

“How can Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) inform strategies to address the increasing normalization of hate within our communities? Given the power of the internet and social media for spreading white supremacist thought, Jessie Daniels, the author of Cyber Racism, will share strategies for countering the spread of racist ideology. Panelists from three TRHT Campus Centers—Jermaine Pearson (Brown University), Charmaine DM Royal (Duke University), and J. Goosby Smith (The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina)—will also discuss how the TRHT Framework can bring about radical change, through storytelling, active listening, and community-engaged work,” AAC&U said in an event posting.

There will be a Q&A during the webinar. You can send webinar queries to and The webinar will be recorded, and the recording will be available online a few weeks later.
