Whether it’s Dr. Seuss, J.K. Rowling or Mr. Potato Head, allegations of “cancel culture” seem to dominate the recent headlines. Fueled by social media, cancel culture has earned a consistent spot in the news cycle this past year.

JCC Greater Boston has partnered with WGBH to bring you the latest in our Jonathan Samen Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations discussion series.
