St. Louis Jewish Book Festival: Sally Kohn
October 30, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Tuesday, October 30, 7pm
Presented by the St. Louis Jewish Book Festival. In The Opposite of Hate, writer, activist and CNN political commentator Sally Kohn talks to leading scientists and researchers, investigating the evolutionary and cultural roots of hate and how simple incivility can be a gateway to much worse. She travels to Rwanda, the Middle East, and across the United States, introducing us to terrorists, white supremacists, and even some of her own Twitter trolls, drawing surprising lessons from these dramatic examples, including inspiring stories of those who left hate behind. As Kohn boldly confronts her own shameful moments, whether it’s the girl she bullied as a child or her own deep partisan resentment, she points the way toward change.
