This section has been created so that you may use both the film and the resources of this website as an educational resource. We encourage you to watch the film and to utilize the study guide as a reference point for exploration of themes.

If you are working with younger children, we have also posted a sample lesson plan. Try it in your classroom and visit Discuss & Chat to have a dialogue with other students.

Please share additional ideas that you may have for activities or lesson plans to encourage the study of the black press, or email us @ Study Guide Suggestions
