In The Moment ... August 15, 2017 Show 156 Hour 2

In February, we talked with filmmaker Matt Ornstein about his documentary "Accidental Courtesy." It follows an aging African American musician whose hobby is to befriend and convert members of the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi groups in America. It's a controversial concept. Should those who preach racism and violence be treated with patience and respect? What is our moral responsibility in the shadow of hate?

John Mollison is the creator of “Old Guys and Their Airplanes,” the internationally award-winning on-demand webshow. He and filmmaker Dalton Coffey join us to talk about the upcoming episode “Dakota Warrior.” It’s the story of Ft. Pierre native LtCDR John C. Waldron. We talk about the mechanism of courage, character, and how one person and one decision can turn the tide of history.
