From the recent shooting in El Paso that appears to have targeted the Hispanic community, to the Christchurch massacre of Muslims, the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, and the shooting of two African Americans at a local grocery store, hate crimes are attacks of violence motivated by prejudice on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation, or other grounds. As the Frazier History Museum prepares for the Violins of Hope, Strings of the Holocaust exhibition October 17 to 26, we look at hate crimes through history, what they look like today, and a call to action.

This program is free thanks to the generosity of the Violins of Hope Louisville.
Seating is limited. Please RSVP
