POV

Darger Moves to an Asylum

  • Aired: 08/02/2005
  • 03:00
  • Rating: NR
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 good and evil, and recognize the complexities in life that make choices more challenging.
