Welcome

Welcome! Facing History and Ourselves, Rhodes College’s Communities in Conversation Series, and the Memphis Jewish Community Center is pleased to partner with So Much Film, producer Andrew Goldberg, and WKNO for a special screening of Viral: Antisemitism in Four Mutations.

This film explores the rise in a virulent antisemitism, the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the 1930’s. By highlighting the hate in four countries, the film makes clear that hate, like a virus, thrives with a receptive human host. The film documents antisemitic movements in Hungary, France, and England, but hate cannot be confined by borders. In the United States, the recruitment of young white men to join the armies of hate has been well-documented. For communities that want to bend this trajectory towards justice and unity, this film and the discussion afterward is a critical call to action.

Our conversation after the screening with Dimitry Anselme of Facing History and Ourselves and Dr. Jonathan Judaken of Rhodes College will be moderated by Marcy Stagner of Memphis Jewish Community Center.

    Facing History and Ourselves

    Facing History and Ourselves uses lessons of history to challenge teachers and their students to stand up to bigotry and hate. At Facing History we believe the bigotry and hate that we witness today are the legacy of brutal injustices of the past. Facing our collective history and how it informs our attitudes and behaviors allows us to choose a world of equity and justice. Facing History’s resources address racism, antisemitism, and prejudice at pivotal moments in history; we help students connect choices made in the past to those they will confront in their own lives. Through our partnership with educators around the world, Facing History and Ourselves reaches millions of students in thousands of classrooms every year. Together we are creating the next generation of leaders who will build a world based on knowledge and compassion, the foundation for more democratic, equitable, and just societies.
