"Documenting Hate: Charlottesville" Screening
Join community members for a viewing of a FRONTLINE and ProPublica investigation of the white supremacists and neo-Nazis involved in the deadly 2017 Charlottesville Unite the Right rally.
Some truly groundbreaking reporting has gone into this film, which is part of an ongoing partnership with ProPublica. Thompson follows a trail of court records, social media posts and videos to two white supremacist groups who participated in the rally, to an active-duty Marine, and to a PhD candidate and employee of a major defense contractor – both of whom were captured in videos engaging in violence. He also examines the failures of law enforcement to prevent the bloodshed, despite warnings from federal authorities.
This event, organized by Blue Ridge Anarchist Black Cross, replaces the January Trouble screening.
