Given the storming and siege of the US Capitol on Jan. 6, we thought we'd share this important conversation we held with Dr. Lawrence Rosenthal, founder and chair of the UC Berkeley Center for Right-Wing Studies, in June 2020. He is the author of Empire of Resentment: Populism’s Toxic Embrace of Nationalism. He spoke with Bill Sokol, Bay Area lawyer and an OLLI moderator, on the roles of the Far Right and white supremacist groups in today's America.

His talk was the first in our ongoing series, America's Unfinished Work, which features leading thinkers on campus and in the community engaged in the examination and eradication of systemic racism to create a more humane, just and equal society.
