Reams of Hate: The Legacy of Henry Ford's Antisemitic Newspaper

Monday, September 13, 2021, 7:00 p.m.
Zoom Webinar
Dr. Catherine Cangany

2019 marked the centennial of Henry Ford’s wildly popular antisemitic newspaper, The Dearborn Independent—in its day, the second-most widely read paper in the United States. And yet, even in 2021, the Independent lives on. Its articles are still in print, now experiencing unprecedented reach, popularity, and power through social media, catalyzing antisemitic harassment and influencing extremist writings. 

The Eastern Michigan University Center for Jewish Studies invites you to join Catherine Cangany, PhD, executive director of Jewish Historical Society of Michigan, for an eye-opening look at how this chapter in our past is still very much present.
