Clyde W. Ford: Dog Whistles and Cat-Calls:The Modern Signs, Symbols, and Signals of Hate, Sunday, February 9 at 7 pm
February 9 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Most are familiar with racist epithets, such as the “N” word, or hateful symbols, such as a swastika. But few are aware of the extensive lexicon of modern signs, symbols, and signals of hate that exist within various subcultures in the US, and around the world. Author and scholar Clyde W. Ford examines the dog-whistles and cat-calls of hate that anyone may encounter in the news, on the Internet, or in the street in order to inform, heighten awareness, and keep ordinary citizens safe.
