Fueling Extremism in a Wired World
Wednesday, May 17
THIS IS HELD AT THE BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY.
In partnership with the United States Memorial Holocaust Museum and Temple Israel of Boston.
Nazis used radio; today’s extremists use social media. Then as now, new technology provides extremists with the unchecked ability to spread hate and prey upon disenfranchised audiences to realize their deadly agenda. How can societies counter these hateful messages and keep the world safe?
