In his Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage for The Washington Post, CA alumnus Eli Saslow ‘00, who has been called “one of the great young journalists in America,” reveals the human stories behind the most divisive issues of our time. From racism and poverty to addiction and school shootings, Saslow’s work uncovers the manifold impacts of major national issues on individuals and families. He has been honored for his coverage of hunger in America, for the devastating portrait of parents whose child was murdered at Sandy Hook, and for his profiles of children orphaned by America’s opioid epidemic. Now, in his latest book, Rising Out of Hatred, he tells the story of how a one-time heir to America’s white nationalist movement comes to question the ideology he helped spread. Rising Out of Hatred is being lauded as a testament to the power of education to broaden minds and spark conversation.
