In 2014 in Grand Saline, Texas, a 79-year-old white Methodist minister named Charles Moore set himself on fire as a final protest against the community’s racism. Drawing from his documentary film Man on Fire, Middlebury professor James Sanchez discusses the rhetoric of white supremacy and suggests ways communities might address bigotry.

Please note: this event will now consist of two parts: viewing the film Man on Fire, then joining director James Sanchez on our Facebook page at this time for his presentation. Fill out our short online form to stream the film for free in advance of his presentation.
