Shades of hate — then, now, tomorrow (an evening of stories and conversations)

Wednesday, May 30, 2018, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
The Los Angeles Theatre Center 514 S Spring St Los Angeles, CA 90013 Map and directions

There’s nothing new about hate in California. From its earliest days — long before the state’s entry into the union — the territory’s residents have faced prejudice and acts of hate. Throughout history, several communities have experienced heightened levels of this — whether for their race, religion, gender, sexuality, national origin, skin tone, physical capabilities or any other factor.

On Wednesday, May 30, KPCC and ProPublica partnered to take a deep and dynamic look at the past and future of hate crimes — and current experiences — in Southern California.

Audiences joined KPCC’s Adolfo Guzman-Lopez and ProPublica’s A.C. Thompson for moderated conversations with experts, researchers and community leaders. Guests also heard firsthand from fellow Angelenos as they share their experiences with hate and prejudice.
