Turning Away From Hate: Confessions of an Ex-Neo Nazi
The African American and African Studies Department is co-sponsoring the event "Turning Away from Hate," a program presented by Hillel featuring reformed neo-Nazi TJ Leyden. After 15 years as a neo-Nazi white supremacist activist and recruiter, TJ Leyden experienced a profound change of heart, turned away from hate, and began teaching tolerance. Today, a man who covered his body in Nazi symbols and advocated for the death of minorities is one of the most compelling advocates for the importance of diversity and cultural appreciation.
TJ will be telling his story on campus on Wednesday, April 30th at 7 PM at Willey Hall 175. Admission is FREE, but seating will be limited. Please arrive early! More information is at http://www.ujews.com/hate.
