This 90-minute documentary will take you into the secret world of the Ku Klux Klan and the destructive nature of hatred for neighbors.
Racial hatred was the currency of trade between two men on opposite sides with the KKK being at the very center. Richard, a Grand Dragon of the KKK and Kenneth, a victim of his brothers murder, would not only leave behind them a trail of destruction, it would also set off a series of events bringing their paths together in significant ways.
In the vein of Mississippi Burning, Ghosts of Mississippi, and Selma, Brotherhood is a gripping, compelling, and unsparingly honest documentary with a spiraling journey into racism and the ripples it causes. Richard was often bullied as a young boy in 1950’s Indiana. By the time Richard attends high school, he is a full fledged member of the Ku Klux Klan, and well on his way to climbing higher ranks in his order.
When Kenneth’s older brother is murdered at the hands of two white men, he begins to focus his rage toward anyone who gets in his way. Richard and Kenneth’s lives of hatred would not only leave behind them a trail of destruction, it would also set off a series of events bringing their paths together in significant ways.
