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.
