Portland Journalist Eli Saslow’s latest book is “Rising Out of Hatred.”

Eli Saslow

Derek Black’s father founded Stormfront, the largest gathering place for racists on the internet. His godfather is David Duke, the former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. From a very young age, Black was a rising star in the White Nationalist movement. But now he has disavowed that entire movement and his family. Portland Journalist Eli Saslow chronicles Derek Black’s transformation in his new book, “Rising Out Of Hatred: The Awakening Of A Former White Nationalist.” We spoke to Saslow at the Portland Book Festival in November 2018.
