2020 Risa K. Lambert CHICAGO VIRTUAL EVENT
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, NOON CDT
Featured Speaker: R. DEREK BLACK was raised in a prominent White Supremacist family and spent his teenage years helping his father expand the world’s first online racial hate community, Stormfront. He will discuss why he renounced the White Supremacist movement and philosophy he was raised in, and his current work at the University of Chicago exploring the medieval and early modern origins of race, racist ideologies, and antisemitic beliefs.
Honoree: MALLY ZOBERMAN RUTKOFF, the daughter of two Holocaust survivors, understood the need to connect with others who shared her family’s history. Mally served as the first chair of the Children of Survivors group in Chicago and launched the National Children of Survivors trips to Washington, DC. Her children are following in their mother’s footsteps as active members of the Museum’s Next Generation. This year, we honor Mally for the extraordinary leadership she has demonstrated for the Museum and throughout the community.
