    AAJFG - 1.05 - Visual History and Visual Media Showcasing the Strength, Perseverance and Oppression of African Americans Across Time

    Overview

    Visual history and visual media can have a profound impact on students’ understanding of our country’s history, events and its people. These resources were carefully selected based on their ability to inform and assist students in understanding historical facts and the intersectionality of race,  culture, economics and more.  The paucity of written resources related to the African-American experience makes the visual medium even more important to integrate into classroom instruction.  A recommended film library with a synopsis of the films is provided in Appendix A.  Teachers can access films on-line through a streaming service.  Specific scenes or an entire movie can be used to underscore key points and/or stimulate analytical activities
