Pardeep Singh Kaleka and Arno Michaelis will discuss “The Gifts of Our Wounds: Finding Forgiveness After Hate,” on Monday, April 29, at 5 p.m. in the Nott Memorial. The talk is free and open to the public.
A native of Punjab, India, Kaleka lost his father in the August 2012 shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis. The temple’s president and founder, Satwant Singh Kaleka, was among the six worshippers killed. The shooter was a self-proclaimed white power skinhead.
Michaelis was a founding member of one of the largest racist skinhead organizations in the world. He later renounced the movement and wrote a book, “My Life After Hate.”
