Think & Drink Event: Eli Saslow in Conversation with Emily Harris – Portland, OR – In recent years, white supremacist organizations that have long been relegated to political margins in the United States have become increasingly bold, staging public demonstrations, flooding social media with racist messaging, and supporting candidates for elected office. How are these movements born, and how do they gain power? Join Oregon Humanities on Oct. 24 for a Think & Drink conversation with Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Eli Saslow that will help us understand the culture that gave rise to white nationalism and how its  hate-driven ideology has entered the mainstream. Joining him for this conversation is Emily Harris, reporter and producer for the Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal public radio show and podcast.
