This article highlights video recordings focused on the Civil Rights Movement, African-American cultural history or racial bias awareness. The eloquent and stirring videographic testament America's Civil Rights Movement, recounts the magnitude of overt animus and degradation faced daily by African Americans. Poignant personal anecdotes and recollections humanize a movement initiated and fueled by the courage and determination of countless generations of unnamed, ordinary people striving for simple, basic freedoms unconsciously enjoyed by others. A History of the Civil Rights Movement is an admirable survey that records the continuity of African American resistance to denigration and the striving for self-determination as it documents sociopolitical and legal milestones in U.S. history. Most significantly, it acknowledges the breadth of participants and ideological perspectives within and between African-American communities reflecting the struggle for equality. The informative filmstrip, Race & Prejudice in America Today, offers valuable lessons on the commonality in diversity plus constructive ideas for inter- and intragroup relations as a means to support sociopolitical awareness and to effect attitudinal change.
