Frank Meeink

Experience the raw story of Frank's descent into America's neo-Naxi underground, and his ultimate triumph over hatred and addiction.  Meeink became a skinhead by age 13. By 18 he was roaming the country as a SkinHead leader and Neo-Nazi recruiter, and soon after he was in prison for kidnapping and beating a member of a rival skinhead gang.  It was there that he met men of differnt races and he began a metamorphosis.  

Today, Frank's life stands for tolerance, diversity and mutual understanding in racial, political and all aspects of society. Frank is truly an inspiration in any time of strife and conflict.
