Now, more than ever, it’s important that you do. In the 1930s, using the modern technology of film, radio, and posters, the politics of hate swarmed over the planet. We faced the preachers of hate in Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and even here in the U.S. Now we face something very similar, utilizing newer media tools like the web. Sponsored by the Office of Equity and Pluralism and the Communication Studies Department.
