Book Review - "Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist"

Thursday, July 9, 2020 17 Tammuz 5780

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

The Congregation Emanu El Sisterhood hosts bi-monthly book reviews throughout the year. These book reviews are open to the public. July's book review will be led by our congregant, Ed Septimus.

Please note: This book review will be held by Zoom and the information to access will be emailed ahead of time to those who register.

In our July book, Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist, the author Eli Saslow, a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, writes through the prism of Derek Black’s disavowal of the mantle of white supremacy, which Black was poised to inherit. Black’s personal example of submitting to exposure and conversation with those who espoused different beliefs, showed how dangerous and damaging his prior beliefs were. This is a true story of America’s racist and Anti-Semitic history told through the battle over a single American soul.

To help us plan for our book reviews and to receive communications about future book reviews, we ask that you kindly RSVP by Wednesday, July 8, either online or by contacting the Sisterhood at sishood@emanuelhouston.org or 713.529.5771, ext. 233.
