#1 New York Times Bestseller - A historian of fascism offers a guide for surviving and resisting America's turn towards authoritarianism. The Founding Fathers tried to protect us from the threat they knew, the tyranny that overcame ancient democracy. Today, our political order faces new threats, not unlike the totalitarianism of the twentieth century. We are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism. Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience. On Tyranny is a call to arms and a guide to resistance, with invaluable ideas for how we can preserve our freedoms in the uncertain years to come. "Mr. Snyder is a rising public intellectual unafraid to make bold connections between past and present." -- The New York Times

What is a Democrat? Why is it so hard to define, and why do we keep letting the Republicans do it? Why do we squabble when we should be united? Why do we drift endlessly into policy disputes when bigger things are at stake?

DEMOCRATS 101 is about an idea: that we need to see our future in bigger terms than politics and campaigns. DEMOCRATS 101 is about starting a national discussion, a movement by rank and file to put us on the proper path to navigate the uncertainty that is going to surround us for the next twenty years.

Former ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jeffery Robinson’s groundbreaking talk on the history of U.S. anti- Black racism is interwoven with archival footage, interviews, and Robinson's story, exploring the enduring legacy of white supremacy and our collective responsibility to overcome it.
