NPR's The Takeaway on WNYC: A Community for Hate: White Power Groups Are Thriving Online

06/23/2015 News Release Image

Pace communications professor Adam Klein was interviewed on air on NPR's The Takeaway on WNYC as the public tries to make sense of the actions of Dylann Storm Roof, the 21-year-old gunman who went on a shooting rampage that left nine people dead at the historic Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal church in Charleston, South Carolina.

From The Takeaway:

"Adam G. Klein, author of a "Space for Hate: The White Power Movement's Adaptation Into Cyberspace," explains that the wide reach and total anonymity of cyberspace has made the internet an ideal place for white supremacists to thrive—and to recruit new adherents. Klein is an assistant professor of communication studies at Pace University."
