Walking Away From Hate: Our Journey Through Extremism

As a troubled teen, Lauren Manning sought a refuge online in the angry world of black metal music. When she met a recruiter who offered her the acceptance she craved, the doctrine of white supremacy supplanted the values of her middle class upbringing and Lauren traded suburbia for a life of violence and criminality on the streets of Toronto.

Told from the perspective of both mother and daughter, Walking Away From Hate chronicles Lauren's descent into extremism, her life within the movement and her ultimate reconnection with the family she once denounced and the mother who refused to give up on her.


Jeanette Manning is active in the Writer's Community of Durham Region and a volunteer with Life After Hate, a non-profit dedicated to helping people escape extremism. After a difficult period of self-deradicalization, Lauren Manning works in construction and as an outreach specialist with Life After Hate. Both mother and daughter live in Whitby, Ontario.
