Tying it all Together - Civil Rights Mini Course- Unit 1

On Monday, you will participate in a "threaded discussion" covering the packets, videos, Internet sites and lecture material we've dealt with in the past two weeks. Be prepared to participate in the threaded discussion. Rather than discuss issues of reparations as we originally planned, we'll focus on the symbolism behind the "noose" and it's relevance in recent events including the Jena 6 incident.
To learn more about Jena 6, visit the link below for MANY stories on the topic.

Ok, i found the movie A Brilliant Mind, so all i have to do is remember it on Monday. Someone sent me this clip about a 15-year-old boy that was killed for being gay, and it's just about Ellen Degeneres talking about it, and at the bottom is a bunch of links about what you can do to help..

Is the movie "A Beautiful Mind"? Is this the one you have?

There is also a documentary called "Brilliant Madness."

Thanks for the site. I'll check it out. Very sad story.
