Countering Racism: Solidarity for Peaceful Change

Mon, 06/01/2020 - 9:44pm

We mourn the murder of George Floyd and join the outcry for justice in his name. He is now linked to countless others who have suffered systemic violence, injustice and hate perpetrated against African Americans throughout a 400-year history in this nation. This legacy and manifestation of hate is still present today.

USC Shoah Foundation has been documenting the results of unchecked hatred that led to the Holocaust and other genocides since its inception 25 years ago. Educators, scholars, organizations, descendants of survivors, and all who are interested are invited to engage with the stories of women and men who can share firsthand what it means to survive.

Survivors and other witnesses to genocide offer knowledge and perspective and inspire resilience and kindness through free digital media education programs.

It is essential that we continue to listen to one another and to testimony like that of Paul Parks, a liberator who spent his life countering hate and promoting positive change to the world.

Paul Parks talks about witnessing the aftermath of the Holocaust and what it meant to his work in the civil rights movement, including his work with Martin Luther King, Jr.
