Education is Only Cure for Stopping Hatred: Reflecting on the Charlottesville Attack

18 Aug 2017

Reflecting on the Charlottesville Attack

“Nobody is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” -Nelson Mandela, quoted by Barack Obama in reaction to the Charlottesville attack on protesters.

In times of unrest and division in our country, we must look for opportunities to teach the values that we, as Americans and educators, can never stop fighting for.

For more than 50 years, APB has been proud to represent voices that champion diversity, tolerance and empathy. Contact us to create a program that promotes tolerance and brings people together through respectful dialogue. We’re proud to represent these distinguished voices:
