Frank Meeink became a skinhead when he was just thirteen. He roamed the country as an Aryan leader and Neo-Nazi recruiter with gangs that would beat people indiscriminately. Now, he’s a civil rights activist.


Today on River To River we will talk to Meeink and filmmaker Kristian Day who is documenting Meeink’s journey throughout Iowa as he searches for his spirituality.


Before that, we will talk with Scott Thompson, the writer and director of "A Place for Heroes", a World War II film being shot in various Iowa towns. Also, Cecelia Podhajsky a resident helping with the production of the film.
