Eli Saslow, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist with The Washington Post, will give a lecture on his book, Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist, on Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. His presentation will be in webinar format followed by a moderated discussion and audience Q&A. Rising Out of Hatred tells the story of how Derek Black, the one-time heir to America’s white nationalist movement, came to question the ideology he helped spread and went on to publicly denounce white nationalism in an open letter to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Saslow is the winner of two George Polk Awards, a PEN Literary Award, a James Beard Award, and other honors. Saslow is also the author of Voices from the Pandemic: Americans Tell Their Stories of Crisis, Courage and Resilience. His lecture is presented by the Lowell Humanities Series, and co-sponsored by the Journalism Program, the American Studies Program, and the Communications Department.
