On August 12, 2017, the nation was gripped by the shocking scene of hundreds of white supremacists taking to the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, bellowing racist and anti-Semitic chants. While some wore polo shirts and others waved Nazi flags, their message was clear: non-whites and minorities have no place in today’s America.

During Charlottesville, the so-called “alt right” showed the country that they were no longer just an internet nuisance, but a real-world movement that could bring together more than 600 extremists for an event where raw hatred was on full display. The streets rang out with the hateful, racist shouts of the neo-Nazis, Klan members and alt right agitators who put aside their differences to gather in an unprecedented show of unity.
