Frank Meeink: A Former Skinhead's Fight Against Prejudice

Hofstra Hillel: The Center for Jewish Life on Campus presents Frank Meeink: A Former Skinhead’s Fight Against Prejudice. A violent South Philadelphia childhood made Frank Meeink easy prey for skinhead gang recruiters. By age 14, Frank had shaved his head and was a leader in the neo-Nazi movement hosting a cable access show called The Reich used for recruitment. While serving a sentence in an Illinois prison, he questioned his hatred in large part to his African-American teammates on a prison football league. After being paroled, Frank defected from the white supremacy movement. Inspired by seeing a police officer holding a lifeless child in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing, he pledged to stop the spread of hatred he himself once had and has appeared on behalf of the Anti-Defamation League, on MTV and other national networks.

Commemorating the International Day of Non-Violence.

Co-sponsored by the Hofstra Cultural Center.
