7/10/08: Skinhead Confessions

TJ Leyden

By Jennifer Napier-Pearce

Salt Lake City, UT – TJ Leyden was 14 when he started propagating the gospel of hate. He covered his body in sinister tattoos, he stabbed and maimed people in the name of white power, and he recruited hundreds to his way of thinking. But then Leyden had an epiphany. Thursday on RadioWest Jennifer Napier-Pearce talks with Leyden about his remarkable transformation and the years he's spent trying to make amends.

  • This Saturday, July 12th, Leyden and co-author Bridget Cook will speak and sign their book "Skinhead Confessions" at the Barnes & Noble in Layton, Utah (1780 North Woodland Park Dr). The event begins at Noon and they'll continue signing until 4:00 p.m. For more information, call (801) 773-9973.
