Violence: An American Tradition (Part 1 of 6)

5 Aug

In light of today’s shooting in Wisconsin, I’ve decided to post a video documenting violence in America.
Exploration of the tradition of violence in America, drawing on the history of invading settlers and native peoples, frontier outlaws and modern-day murderers, racist violence, the urban underclass, and domestic abuse. Narrated by Julian Bond, with commentary by Cornell West. Caution: Contains scenes that may be disturbing to young or sensitive viewers.
