A Recovering Skinhead on NPR

Former skinhead Frank Meeink was interviewed on NPR’s Fresh Air last night (listen here).

Meeink once recruited kids to be skinheads and even had a cable access talk show called The Reich. Imprisoned at 18, his exposure to people with other backgrounds caused him to begin questioning his beliefs. He now lectures on racial acceptance for the Anti-Defamation League. Working with the Philadelphia Flyers (Meeink grew up in South Philadelphia), he created a hate prevention program called “Harmony Through Hockey.” His memoir, Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead was published recently.

The book rose to #112 (from #14,721) on Amazon.
