    Synopsis


    A Dangerous Idea
    Director/co-writer Stephanie Welch’s documentary unpacks the roots of the American eugenics movement in the 20th century and examines how Social Darwinism and biological determinism continue to threaten the American ideal of equality. It spotlights how women, African-Americans, Native Americans, and the most impoverished sections of American society continue to be disenfranchised by the popularization of false scientific claims through interviews with leading scientists and social thinkers such as Van Jones and Robert Reich. ~ Augustine Chay, Rovi
