The Eugenics Crusade: Trailer
Preview: Season 30 | 30s
The Eugenics Crusade tells the story of the unlikely — and largely unknown — campaign to breed a “better” American race, tracing the rise of the movement that turned the fledgling science of heredity into a powerful instrument of social control. Populated by figures both celebrated and obscure, The Eugenics Crusade is a revelatory portrait of an America at once strange and eerily familiar.
