On The Consequences of Hate Speech

Art Exhibition Proposal for the Manny Cantor Center

Dec 2018 – Jan 2019

Words have always been a catalyst for civil discord and today hate speech is increasingly prevalent, tearing apart the fabric of our communities in ever more violent and destructive ways. Examples of hate speech are everywhere, in our personal and work lives and in the public sphere, passing from generation to generation by written and spoken word, inculcating attitudes of intolerance, racism and discrimination in both children and adults.

This exhibit illuminates hate speech, its historically destructive manifestations, and its consequences for humanity.  The exhibit also advocates the antidote: educating our children and taking upon ourselves the responsibility to condemn hate speech in all its manifestations.
