American Hate: Survivors Speak Out — Lunch and Dialogue

In his new book American Hate: Survivors Speak Out, human rights lawyer Arjun Singh Sethi collects the stories of 13 lives impacted by hate-crimes during and after the 2016 presidential election. They detail the horrifying actions inflicted, and the psychological imprint left on victims in the aftermath. We hear from people like Taylor Dumpson, an African-American university student who was elected student government president before being surrounded by displays of nooses and bananas. We hear from the family of Khalid Jabara, who is no longer here to share his story after being murdered by a man who previously harassed him for his Arab-American identity. Although these stories reveal America’s seemingly hopeless landscape, Sethi maintains an optimistic perspective, finding ways to resist hate.
