color

On Saturday, Jan. 12th, Boise’s First Congregational United Church of Christ will offer a free screening of the hour-long Idaho Public Television documentary, “The Color of Conscience.”

The film looks at the development of the modern human rights movement in Idaho. It features the story of a small group of concerned citizens who fought against Aryan Nations, ultimately bankrupting the neo-Nazi supremacist group in North Idaho.

The program also examines some of the current human rights issues in Idaho, such as gay rights, immigrant rights and hate crimes.

According to The Idaho Statesman  filmmaker  and public television producer, Marcia Franklin, will be on hand for the screening.

“The free showing is provided as part of the Church’s celebration of human rights in the local community, in particular the recent passing of Boise’s anti-discrimination ordinance,” the paper reports.

Boise’s First Congregational United Church of Christ is located at 2201 Woodlawn Avenue in Boise.
