Idaho Public TV human rights documentary wins national award

An Idaho Public Television documentary, “The Color of Conscience: Human Rights in Idaho,” has won the Silver Gavel Award for television from the American Bar Association. The hour-long special examines the development of the human rights movement in Idaho, including the small group of concerned citizens who stood up to the Aryan Nations, ultimately bankrupting the neo-Nazi supremacist group in North Idaho. The program also examines other current human rights issues in the state, from gay rights to immigrants to hate crimes. Marcia Franklin is the producer, writer and host, and Jay Krajic is the videographer/editor.

The national award was just the latest honor for the program, which also won a regional Edward R. Murrow Award and a Cine Golden Eagle Award, among others. You see show online at
