White Supremacy, Insurrection, and U.S. Democracy

The attack on the Capitol in Washington, DC on January 6 shook the foundations of U.S. democracy. A panel of Northeastern experts will examine, together with the audience, the origins of the riot, the deeper ideological forces behind its occurrence, as well as its aftermath, including effects on the presidential transition and reactions in law enforcement and governance.
