Derek Black is the son of a white supremacist leader who groomed him to be the next generation leader of white supremacists. Then he went to college at Florida’s New College where he met new friends and was exposed to ideas different from what he was exposed to at home. Upon being exposed as a white nationalist, few people attempted to befriend him. A Jewish student leader invited him to Shabbat dinners at home. A girl he befriended believed there is a nice person behind his racist veneer. His beliefs slowly changed. He started to support Black Lives Matter, affirmative action, and same-sex marriage. How did he have a change of heart?
Rising Out of Hatred is authored by the Pulitzer Prize winner Eli Saslow. He is the author of Ten Letters: The Stories Americans Tell Their President.
