Domestic Extremism: From Oklahoma City to the Capitol Insurrection
From the founding of the United States, disaffected groups have used or threatened to use violence as a means of affecting political change in the country. This presentation will focus first on the rise of militant extremists in the 1980s that led to Ruby Ridge, Waco and, ultimately, to the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995. In the aftermath of that bombing, federal law enforcement cracked down on domestic terrorists. The presenters will then discuss the dramatic rise of militant extremist groups following the election of President Trump and the ongoing threat such groups pose in the wake of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Speakers:

Rodney Uphoff, Elwood L. Thomas Missouri Endowed Professor Emeritus of Law and director of the University of Missouri South Africa Educational Program, served as a member of the defense team representing Terry Nichols in the Oklahoma City bombing trial

Leonard Zeskind, internationally-recognized expert on white supremacists and founder of the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights, recipient of a MacArthur Fellows Program Genius Grant
