In honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

In honor of the month which gave birth to Martin Luther King Jr., Historybusters has put together a new curriculum on the American Civil Rights Movement beginning with the first African slaves purchaced in Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619, and ending with the election of Barak 2008. Members may download this new e-book from their drop box.

Here are just a few of the thirty-three films we recommend:
Race to Freedom
Africans in America
Amazing Grace
Gods and Generals
Missisipi Burning
Miss Evers' Boys
Our Friend Martin
Citizen King
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Tuskegee Airmen
Something the Lord Made
The Rosa Parks Story
Disney's Ruby Bridges
A Soldiers Story
Frontline's The Choice 2008

In honor of the many past heros, Historybusters asks that you take a moment to share one of these wonderful films with your kids this month.
