My U.S. history class is (appropriately) discussing the civil rights movement today. In addition to their usual reading, I pulled together a bunch of YouTube clips of Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and others. You can check them out here. Most of those are probably familiar to anyone reading here, but Eldridge Cleaver is fun to watch, and there’s something surreal about seeing Malcolm X on the ur-Canadian talk show, the CBC’s Front Page Challenge.
I’m also posting this to show off my students, frankly. Scroll down the course website and see how much time and thought they put into their comments on the reading each week. I really am quite proud of them.
