Exploring Hate: Antisemitism, Racism and Extremism is a new public media content initiative about the roots and rise of hate in America and across the globe. Exploring Hate provides historical programming, examines present-day threats, and seeks to highlight responses that promote understanding, healing and civility.
Exploring Hate reporting also appears on national news programs Amanpour and Company and PBS NewsHour Weekend, and WNET’s regional news and public affairs programs MetroFocus and NJ Spotlight News. Additionally, the multi-platform initiative will include original documentary production and digital content, PBSLearningMedia educational tools for classrooms, and community engagement events.
As a radio special and podcast, Exploring Hate is hosted by Julian Phillips. Phillips moderates panels of experts who have devoted their careers to addressing the issues of hate on Long Island and their on-going efforts to eradicate this multi-faceted dilemma.
