In the late 1980s and early 90s, Arno Michaelis was a founding member of a notorious worldwide racist skinhead organization, a reverend of a self-declared racial holy war, and front man of the hate-metal band Centurion, which is still popular with racists today. Hate consumed seven years of Arno's life, and during that time, he saw close friends murdered, and others incarcerated. Fueled by rage, Arno harmed innocent people, his family, and himself.Single parenthood, love for his daughter, and the forgiveness shown by people he once hated all helped turn Arno's life around, bringing him to embrace diversity and practice gratitude for all life. The author of My Life After Hate, Arno now travels internationally to share his story in an effort to counter the cycle of violence he once perpetuated.Today he helps to run Serve 2 Unite, an organization founded in response to the August 5, 2012 Sikh Temple shooting in which a white power skinhead (who was a part of the gang Arno was a founding member of) murdered six people because he told himself a story that made him feel threatened by their culture and the color of their skin. Serve 2 Unite has inspired tens of thousands of students to cherish a common human identity while adopting service as a purpose.As the Alt-Right strengthens in America, one of their strategies is to use college campuses as fertile recruitment grounds. Mr. Michaelis will also do a workshop on September 7 from 3:30 to 6pm titled 'Strategies for Addressing Hate'. (Please note that the time for the workshop may change.)This program is sponsored by YOU COUNT, and The Martin Luther King Jr. Society
During a year when we commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Church, the Saint Michael's College community is holding a symposium on the Lutheran-Catholic dialogue over the past fifty years. The symposium considers the challenges that lie ahead for Lutherans and Catholics as we move toward stronger bonds and greater communion, leading hopefully to full communion.
The Center for Multicultural Affairs and Services welcomes Holocaust survivor and genocide educator Peter Stein on Thursday, September 28, at 7pm in the McCarthy Arts Center. Stein will present his lecture 'Surviving the Holocaust: Memories of a Czech Family in Nazi Prague.' Stein will speak about the current rise of Nazism in the Unites States through the lens of his family and their experiences during the rise of Nazism and Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia. He will explore the larger historical and contemporary context of antisemitism. Stein will introduce us to the human aspects by introducing is to relatives who were sent to Terezin, a ghetto and concentration camp, and then to Auschwitz to their deaths as well as the stories of his father and other members of his family who survived. As emboldened white supremacists threatens violence in our country and Nazism has been emboldened in our society, we hope Peter's Visit will enable us to reflect on our societies and our responsibilities to each other as citizens and human beings.
