Controversial conservative personality Candace Owens is set to testify in a House Judiciary Committee hearing on white nationalism and hate crimes.

Owens, the Turning Point USA communications director who has built a personal brand around her attempts to pull African Americans away from liberal movements and into conservative circles, will be on the House minority's witness list in next Tuesday's hearing.

“This hearing will examine hate crimes, the impact white nationalist groups have on American communities and the spread of white identity ideology. The hearing will also foster ideas about what social media companies can do to stem white nationalist propaganda and hate speech online,” the House Judiciary Committee said in a statement issued Friday.

Owens will be joining Eileen Hershenov of the Anti-Defamation League, Eva Paterson of the Equal Justice Society, and Neil Potts, public policy director of Facebook, as witnesses.

Her efforts, which she has dubbed "blexit," gained notoriety among conservative grassroots activists after rapper Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian received backlash last year for their support of President Trump. At the time, West lamented that African Americans were expected by society to think and vote a certain way, repeatedly saying that he felt a sense of freedom by supporting Trump.

Since then, West has walked back his public support of Trump. Owens, however, remains adamant about her mission. She remains an active part of the grassroots movement, becoming a regular figure in conservative grassroots politics such as speaking roles at the Conservative Political Action Conference and taking up regular guest roles on Fox News.
