Color of Conscience

May 28 2011 by Peter Morrill

  During the week of May 22, IdahoPTV premiered two new programs. Color of Conscience and a a special Dialogue follow-up. The new, hour-long documentary Color of Conscience, produced by Marcia Franklin and directed by Jay Krajic, explores the story of a group of activists in northern Idaho who mobilized to oppose the Aryan Nations, a white supremacist/neo-Nazi group that set up a compound near Hayden, Idaho, in the 1970s. Using archival footage dating back 25 years, as well as interviews with human rights leaders, victims of prejudice and hate crimes, and a former neo-Nazi skinhead, Franklin looks not only at the history of Idaho’s modern human rights movement, but also at challenges that still lie ahead.
