The project examines how the face of white supremacy has changed from white-robed Ku Klux Klan members and skinheads flying overtly racist symbols to clean-cut, well-educated, middle-class men who have developed sophisticated techniques and ruthless recruiting tactics.

“It feels so great to be recognized for our work. Journalism isn’t easy, especially when seeking uncomfortable truths,” Campanella, the project leader, said.
