    In 1959, psychiatrist Milton Rokeach brought together three schizophrenic men who believed they were Jesus Christ, hoping to cure them of their delusions. But over time, his methods became dangerously amoral.

    Thanks to Richard Bonier and Ronald Hoppe for their help.  Additional thanks to Peter Shyppert as the voice of Milton Rokeach.

    You can buy The Three Christs of Ypsilanti, Rokeach’s book, right here.

    What if an older white male started chasing young Asian females?  Is that right?  Is that racist?

    Debbie Lum sets out to make a documentary exposing the loathsome "Yellow Fever" phenomenon. She began filming Steven, a 60-year old white man, and Sandy, a 30-year old woman from China. But when Steven and Sandy need a translator, Debbie uncomfortably finds herself on the other side of the camera.

    To see the story unfold with your own eyes, check out Debbie's documentary, Seeking Asian Female. It's truly fascinating, and it premiered on PBS' Independent Lens on May 6, 2013.

    She also has a fantastic web project discussing sex and race at Theyreallsobeautiful.com. Check it out.
