Theo Wilson’s experiences and insight are crucial in addressing the growing issue of hate propaganda on campus.
Featured on Buzzfeed, CNN, MSNBC, and countless media outlets, Theo Wilson decided to create a fake online persona so he could better understand white supremacist trolls. He spent months inside the echo chamber learning about why racism flourishes online. His Ted Talk on the Infiltrating the Alt Right now has over 8 million views.
He began his speaking career in the N.A.A.C.P. at the age of 15, and has always had a passion for social justice. In 2013, Theo began speaking with Rachel’s Challenge, an organization started by the family of Columbine victim, Rachel Scott.
Through lecture, poetry and interactive discussion, Theo addresses the ‘how’ and more importantly the ‘why’ college campuses have been targeted with hate propaganda.
