What makes hate speech dangerous and when does it cross the line to incitement and violence? This talk will address new thinking about the factors that give speech the power to promote violent hate, the hallmarks of this kind of "dangerous speech," and what can be done to counter such speech without restricting freedom of expression. Dr. Elizabeth White, Research Director of the Center for the Prevention of Genocide at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will discuss where dangerous speech is occurring today and options for addressing it.
