Kamau and Hari dive deep into the events that stirred the nation this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.

One of the largest white supremacist demonstrations in recent US history led to the death of anti-racist protester Heather Heyer and injured many others.

Journalist/activist Spencer Sunshine explains the historical background of white supremacy groups in America and how they organize themselves today.

We also hear from Media Matters senior fellow Matthew Gertz, community organizer Rosa Clemente, Pastor Michael McBride, and OUR LISTENERS.

They all share how they’re processing this moment and taking action.
