Discovery Rage and White Fear
Please join us for a special virtual guest lecture and conversation with LGS Research Fellow, Dane Peters!
On January 6, 2021, the world watched as the United States of America’s foundation of democracy and civility was tarnished. Thousands marched, demonstrated, and eventually found their way into Capitol Hill resulting in the death of five people. What was the intent? To prevent the certification of the 2020 presidential election. The rationale? The belief that the was country changing and would no longer be a White Christian nation, and thus being called upon to have their own Harper’s Ferry
Rebellion. This conversation centers around the kindling of white rage by our school system’s miseducation.
