"Jubilee Singers: Sacrifice and Glory" offers a unique and inspiring lens for studying many themes relevant to the period of Reconstruction, including race relations, education, grassroots activism, race relations, popular culture, music, and American regionalism (particularly as it relates to the culture of the American south). You can either use part or all of the film with your class or delve into the resources available on this Web site to supplement your classroom activities.
