Frontline: A Class Divided

(Hysterical Blackness reminded me of this documentary. I've used it in my courses and it always provokes interesting discussions.)

This is one of the most requested programs in FRONTLINE's history. It is about an Iowa schoolteacher who, the day after Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered in 1968, gave her third-grade students a first-hand experience in the meaning of discrimination. This is the story of what she taught the children, and the impact that lesson had on their lives.
