We all have been disappointed, dismayed or angry with creators, leaders and celebrities whose work we admire, but whose personal actions are inappropriate, reprehensible, or worse. But, as individuals, we are responsible to activate the cancel culture spectrum from punishment to redemption and need to consider ramifications. Is accountability the middle ground? Ernest Owens, The Case For Cancel Culture: How This Democratic Tool Works to Liberate Us All and Evan Nierman, The Cancel Culture Curse: From Rage to Redemption in a World Gone Mad, offer conflicting points of view about cancel culture and its impact on society. Moderated by Kathryn Lofton, Lex Hixon Professor of Religious Studies and American Studies at Yale University.
