The presentation and screening event of my award-winning documentary film, “The Sand Creek Massacre”, had a standing room only audience. Questions afterwards were penetrating and abysmal about the atrocities that took place during the massacre. The fine point of my appearance was that racism in America is a cancer. It continues to eat away at the heart of the collective consciousness. Racists/bigots are the cancer. All human beings are equal. Education is a powerful weapon here, and once those who believe they are better than others learn and integrate that into their daily thinking, then, the collective consciousness can become stronger and more vital.
