Beginning at 7 p.m., at the Holocaust Memorial Center located at 28123 Orchard Lake Road in Farmington Hills, and co-sponsored by Eastern Michigan University, Kay will explain how the Internet has created a dramatic increase in terms of visibility and intensity of these acts. The event is free to the general public.
Kay is Professor of Communication, Media and Theater Arts at Eastern Michigan University, who has authored number books and articles on communication, rhetoric and argumentation. He has presented testimony on extremist groups to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission and frequently lectures on Hate in Cyberspace, the Internet and Anti-Semitism, and Hate Music to community groups and college audiences throughout the country.
It is the mission of the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus to remember those who perished and those who survived the Holocaust and, in a world increasingly faced with sectarian strife and intolerance, to set forth the lessons of Holocaust as a model for teaching ethical conduct and responsible decision-making. By highlighting those individuals who, in the midst of evil, stood for the best, rather than the worst of human nature, the Holocaust Memorial Center seeks to contribute to maintaining an open and free society.
The facility is wheelchair accessible and free parking is available at both the North and South entrances.
