Healing From Hate examines the root causes of hate group activity through the bold work of Life After Hate – an organization founded by former Skinheads and neo-Nazis now engaged in de-radicalizing violent extremists, and transforming attitudes of intolerance on the front lines.
HFH documents a stunning year of hatred in America, the circumstances behind the battle for the soul of our nation, and what’s needed to return meaning, identity and tolerance to a generation of disenfranchised white men.
