Darger Moves to an Asylum (Clip 4 of 6)

Henry Darger had a difficult childhood that influenced his views on good and evil. The first clip associated with the In the Realms of the Unreal: Good and Evil lesson plan shows Darger's move from the Mission of Our Lady of Mercy to the Lincoln Asylum for Feeble-Minded Children. Students should examine ideas surrounding good and evil, and recognize that there are often complexities in life that make choices more challenging.
