(4) Part 1: Journey from Racism to Redemption Discussion Forum

Bryon Widner went from having symbols of racist violence carved into his body and face, and being called “the enforcer” to being a kind, nurturing father and husband who began to question his ideologies. Things began to change in his mind and his heart.

Question #2:

Why is it that “Bryon began to see himself as others did; a social freak, an outcast from the society he now so desperately longed to be part of.” What helped change his mind/heart?

Question #3:
