A world that has striven to elevate the role of cultural diversity is now undergoing a backlash in which change, adaptation, and pluralism are being subjugated by exclusionary, bigoted and nativist political movements. Global Affairs and Economics journalist Ali Velshi examines the current phenomenon and spread of culture wars, and culture’s role in both curbing and spreading populist ideals.

Ali Velshi is the host of MSNBC’s Live with Ali Velshi, Co-host of MSNBC’s Velshi & Ruhle, and an NBC Business Correspondent.
