Lawrence O'Donnell is hosting his first-ever documentary for MSNBC on Sunday night.

The documentary, called "Erasing Hate," chronicles two years in the life of Bryon Widner, who was a violent skinhead for 16 years before he decided to turn his life around. He had one problem, though: the startling array of racist tattoos that covered his entire body. The documentary gets its title from Widner's harrowing 20-month tattoo removal process.

The documentary airs Sunday, June 26th, at 9 P.M. Below, watch a (slightly disturbing) clip from "Erasing Hate."
