I used this piece last year in my class and it was extremely impactful. I would like to use it again with my African American History class, but with remote learning, it may be tough. Could this be made accessible for students? Thanks
Hi, mrgwoods33. Generally, we would not recommend using this film with students in a virtual classroom/distance learning setting. This is not the most effective or safe mechanism to have students confront this subject matter.
I keep getting this message:
Because of its privacy settings, this video cannot be played here.

Is there something I can do about this?
Hello, JenLaxton. This issue should be fixed now. Thank you!
