This is the powerful story of how a prominent white supremacist changed his heart and mind. Derek Black grew up at the epicenter of white nationalism. His father founded Storm Front, the largest racist community on the internet. His godfather, David Duke, was a KKK Grand Wizard. By the time Derek turned 19, he was regarded as the “leading light” of the white nationalist movement. In this book, Black tells the story of how white-supremacist ideas moved from the far-right fringe to mainstream American. It can help us understand what is happening in this American moment, and to better understand one another.
