From the punishment of defenseless Native Americans by Christopher Columbus 500 years ago, to the domestic and racially motivated assaults that run rampant today. American history is permeated by acts of violence. Using archival photos and footage, as well as the words of both historical figures and current experts in sociology, medicine and history, this program explores the recurring patterns of violence that have emerged in our society as as result of insurrection, anger, prejudice, and ignorance. Hosted by civil rights activist Julian Bond, the program examines many of the most notorious acts of violence that have scarred the American psyche over the past 200 years, and concludes that if Americans do not learn from their violent heritage, they may be doomed to repeat it
