A Conversation with Derek Black on his Journey Out of White Supremacy

Derek_BlackDerek Black is the subject of Eli Saslow’s new book, Rising Out of Hatred: The Awakening of a Former White Nationalist. Derek is the son of Don Black, the founder of White Nationalism, and the godson of David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the KKK. As the heir-apparent to the white supremacist throne, no one expected that one day Derek would condemn his family’s ideology and walk away from his destiny. Join us as we discuss Derek’s journey from white supremacist to civil rights activist.
