Black History Month Videos

There are many great movies that could be used to commemorate Black History Month. But many of them are rated R. And for good reason. Rated R stuff happened - and continues to happen - in real life. But when you work with youth or churches, ya gotta tailor things a bit for that context. So, here is a list of videos we thought would be helpful resources for a wider audience: The Rosa Parks Story, Secret Life of Bees, Ruby Bridges, Selma Lord Selma, The Great Debaters, Remember the Titans, Ray, Pride, Malcolm X, Uncle Tom's Cabin, A Raisin in the Sun, Mississippi Burning, Amistad, Keep Your Eyes on the Prize, and Yes We Can: The Barack Obama Story. There are also some good online resources at the History and Biography websites.
