“America’s Fascist Brew; Will America Fail?” is an introduction to the “If America Fails? The Coming Tyranny” webcast series. It features a two-hour online panel discussion where we shared videos from “The Handmaid’s Tale” Hulu TV series and summarized the first four seasons of the show, while exploring key themes. The panel discussion was followed by a one-hour open chat with the audience, found at this link.
“IF AMERICA FAILS?: The Coming Tyranny,” is a real-world exploration of a fictional story. A new totalitarian society is created in the dystopian world of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” It resonates, frighteningly, with the dramatic efforts happening in the United States today—to suppress voting rights, limit a woman’s right to choose, criminalize free speech, distort education, rewrite history, and other threats taking place in the country now. Our Black voice collaborative considers the themes presented by the universally-focused web series, from our own perspective—relating them to real-life current events—and warns, the time to fight fascism is NOW!
