As ancient as Cain and Abel and as recent as yesterday’s headlines, hate has many faces: racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, sectarianism, domestic violence. But do we really understand its roots, and are there practical ways to cope with it? What is hate doing to us? And what does hate do for us?
In Beyond Hate, award-winning journalist Bill Moyers seeks to answer these and other questions. His search takes him across the country and around the world, from Jerusalem to South Central Los Angeles, from the Anatomy of Hate conference in Oslo, Norway, to a classroom in Brooklyn, New York. Moyers talks to those whose lives have been shaped by hate and those who have dedicated their lives to going beyond it, including Elie Wiesel, Nelson Mandela, Jimmy Carter, Myrlie Evers-Williams, Václav Havel, and others.
In a broadcasting career spanning 40 years, journalist Bill Moyers has distinguished himself at Newsday, NBC, CBS, and PBS. His many honors include lifetime achievement Emmy® and Peabody awards.

Hate thrives in every culture, nation, religion, street, and "We're all capable" of hating, say experts. "Healthy hate is an oxymoron." Moyers looks at the many faces of hate. It's a peek at the psychology of hatred and how it is self-justified. An educational, informative discussion on a very difficult subject. It contains such disgusting scenes, at times, that the viewer will "hate" it. Eventually at least one form of hatred will appear all to close to your home. But it ends with a talk with kids on how to non-violently confront hate.
BONUS "Facing Hate" is an hour interview with Elie Wiesel (1986 Nobel Peace Prize, author, Auschwitz survivor at age 15- family all died there, sponsor of world conferences on hate.) Some excerpts from this interview are also a part of the feature. His thoughts on the Nazi war camp are poignant. Moyers poses profound questions. It's a deep philosophical discussion of hate.
