Cult Favorites: The Rise & Fall of Cults in America

What exactly does joining a cult entail? What's the difference between utopian communes and full-blown cults? Join Dr. Elizabeth Yuko, who covers cults and new religious movements as a contributor to Rolling Stone, for an illustrated lecture taking an inside look into some of the most fascinating — and notorious — groups in American history. From Charles Manson and his Family to Jonestown to Heaven's Gate to NXIVM, we'll consider how and when these communities become dangerous, and what they can teach us about human nature.
