How to Overcome White Supremacy with Christian Picciolini

Trauma is the underlying theme as people are searching for identity, community, and purpose that can lead people down that road.


This is a special episode from the archives featuring a conversation between Adam Ericksen and Christian Picciolini, a former American extremist, who is the founder of the Free Radicals Project, a global network that worked to prevent extremism and help people disengage from hate movements.

In his book, White American Youth: My Descent into America’s Most Violent Hate Movement – and How I Got Out, Christian describes how he was enticed into the Neo-Nazi Skinhead movement, rose into positions of the leadership within the movement, and his final departure from the movement.
