Documenting Hate: Charlottesville
The violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville one year ago shocked the country. Dozens were injured, and it ended in the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, a counter-protester who was killed when a car crashed into demonstrators.
In Documenting Hate: Charlottesville, a year-long reporting partnership with ProPublica, FRONTLINE goes inside the events of that deadly weekend — identifying and investigating white supremacists and neo-Nazis at the center of the violence, tracing the origins and actions of the groups they belong to, and examining how law enforcement largely stayed back as chaos unfolded.
If you missed the documentary’s premiere, stream it now — online, in full, for free. It’s a sobering look at a weekend that stunned America – and what has happened in the year since. We will continue to follow this story: a second documentary exploring the resurgence of white supremacy in America will air later this fall. Watch here
