Title: "Yon Don't Stand By and Let People Get Hurt: Armed Antifascism after Charlottesville."
Joined in conversation by historians Vincent Brown, Timothy McCarthy, and Lisa McGirr. What does this time of escalating political discord demand of us—our ethics, our social selves, and our bodies? How can communities protect themselves from racist terror when the state is indifferent or hostile? From the perspective of his experiences with Redneck Revolt in Charlottesville, VA, and Durham, NC, anthropologist Dwayne Dixon discusses armed self-defense and the need for a diversity of tactics in anti-fascist resistance.
