Episode 13: Christian Picciolini
Breaking Hate with Christian Picciolini
Christian Picciolini was a vulnerable 14-year old when approached by a leader of a neo-Nazi group in Chicago. Christian fell in with the group and remained for eight years, becoming a leader in the white supremacist skinhead movement.
Today, Picciolini is free of his white supremacist background; he is a leading de-radicalizer of those who remain within its lure. In this timely conversation with Marianne, Picciolini details his descent into hate, how he ultimately escaped, and how he’s using his experience and knowledge to free others.
